The modern ones are not that expensive and look a lot better. In my opinion they would be worth considering if it does not need to be something vintage/antique.

The newer ones look much better.

@steanze

Do you have any pictures of your 60-70’s zini pots?

A zini pot from this era is at the top of my list for F1 pots. Although I’ve yet to come across one for sale other than one that kyarazen sold awhile back.

I have one JDTF pot. It's quite old school style. Like 90s pots. But their construction is much better than F1 or other 90s 00s productions.

It's a modern option for those who like like they charm of older pots, while have a good fitting lid and straight lines.

I'd say as an alternative to 80s 90s F1.
Old school style as that its not the modern shiny smooth look everyone is going for.
Ah makes sense.

Yes, a close up of the clay would be great. ;)

Unfortunately covid19 separated me from my camera, and it is night now so I don't have great lighting. I tried my best with my phone's camera. This is an early 1970s jiazini side handle gezui:

Not really the best lighting... rather soft but sufficient lighting to see the clay character.

Cheers!

What about Zini from this era?
Zini from the 90s is hit or miss, need to evaluate case by case. From the 80s is better. From green label or earlier even better. The best F1 zini imo is the 60s-early 70s jiazini, but it is not very cheap...

There is also good post 2000s zini, it just becomes more difficult to evaluate and you need to look case by case with a fair amount of experience.
Is green label qingshuini also good? As like, a subset of zini.

Yes, in my view green label qingshuini is also very good. But the 1960s benshan zini and 1960s-early 70s jia zini are superior.

Left: jiazini, right: qingshuini. Bear with my camera and lighting...
