Japanese as well.
Is it? From casual observation it seems to me that Japanese teaware is much more drawn to dark, muted and blackish colours, rather than red.
The admiration of vermillion extends beyond teaware for both cultures.

Learned something interesting recently- the practice of painting the cz pot with slurry is mostly discontinued in modern times. The shiny cz pits we see today tend to be from burnishing. Some cz artists today still apply the slurry - but mostly for special batches.

Yes, as far as I know it stopped somewhere in the 90s

Admiring a bit the old patina (uhh... dirt really...) of this new to me late Qing pot before I clean it up and start over. Just under 60ml this is now my smallest pot. Not sure if the tomobako was actually commissioned/made for this pot or if the bottom says something totally unrelated. Rather rough workmanship and a bit of damage but isn't that always the charm with these? Quick pour test and the lid fit seems surprisingly good though. Curious to get to try out this clay.

Do you happened to know if the leaf mark chop was commonly use in late qing period? I have been looking at information on the leaf mark and couldn’t find much information aside from its commonly use on porcelains.

Modern too, though that should comes as no surprise. I just looked at a modern replica and it has the same leaf seal.

Another new little friend of mine - 60mL.

It seemed to enjoy some home-stored yancha earlier today.

I've also noticed that I've started to fall for pear shapes...

@DailyTX Not sure yet :D For now I've just threw some aged TW oolong in it to inaugurate it, but I generally prefer it in smaller pots. Maybe whites?

Younger white tea maybe a good option, assuming the wall is not thick.
