Teachronicles I may have the same one, coming soon! I'll have to look into the inscriptions. Do you know any details on yours, aside from the year and clay? Also, how do you keep that shine so brilliant!?
I'll get a picture of the seal in better light tmrw. I believe the seal on it, is more often found in the early to mid sixties.
For getting a nice shine, I do use a pot brush, but I didn't always. Probably about half the time I had this pot I didn't use a brush. Also, ime, after a while of use sometimes pots get stained with tea but the appearance is kind of matte and dull. At that point I take a wet cotton cloth and give it a nice rub. Also at that time I try to even out some of the stains below the tip of the spout, around the base, and around the opening.
, I was notified of your reply right after I finished the above reply. It sounds like a lot written out like that, but it's not really. Essentially yes, you can just brew tea in it, some are not as fussy as me. And some pots dont need much extra at all, as bok said.
