Nice patina on my 60s shuiping. Probably 2-3 years of use.

Beautiful patina! Someone worked diligently on this lovely pot :)

Do you have a teapot with an adjusted lid hole? If so, could you please show a photo of the lid?
I don’t think I do, sorry... can’t really see much anyways. The ones I did, where just fully clogged, so not a case of widening it, but rather to have a hole in the first place.

Thanks, I like uniformity so now that I'll own a couple of pots I'll need some clay cups and pitcher. Damn this OCD :D
Usually yixing cups and pitchers aren't great... I would prefer to go with something very different like porcelain than with a clay that is not the same as the clay on your teapot, and is potentially of lower quality. But aesthetics can be quite personal, there aren't any rules :)

You make a valid point sir, and tea sets can be expensive and worthless at the same time :D

I'd like to see a cone shaped lid hole, because I think I'd break my lid if I try that. :D

@Chadrinkincat

Do you still have your teapot with the widened lid hole you posted on Instagram?

@TeaTotaling
I noticed that tall 80’s duanni pot from ZAG was sold. Did you end up buying it?

I’ve been trying to convince myself to buy that LQER hongni pot but ultimately decided against it. I came to the conclusion that it probably wouldn’t see much use due to size and price (fear of breaking). My 2yr old 60’s pots are still in unused condition so I wouldn’t expect anything different with an even rarer/$$$$ pot.

@Mark-S

I don’t have any pictures. What are you expecting to see? Your pot isn’t rare or valuable so I wouldn’t overthink it unless your planing to resell it.

Cone shaped lid holes are quite common in Qing pots

@Mark-S

I sorta over did this one so it’s a bit too noticeable from the outside.

I did in fact go for it! The Duanni is 110ml. I ended up going for a LQER Zhuni & Zini instead of the Hongni mentioned before. For Hongni, I decided on a 60's 80ml version.

@Bok Will do! Definitely excited. I wish we all lived closer together. It would be nice to christen these pots, sharing tea with all of you.

Wow! That's quite an order! Very excited for you. Which LQER pots did you decide on? 60s hongni shuiping?
