It does - thanks Octo, just putting the pot through its paces and it seems to be a good performer.

My new adoption, looks like F1 Papaya from late 80s and early 90s. What do you guys think?

On another note what do you guys think of this pot? Seller claims it to be mid 20Th, prefactory maybe?
A very clear modern replica.
+1
Please elaborate? It is about how the bottom of the pot is made? Or the type of clay?

Clay, shape, workmanship, carving. Every detail is incorrect for an antique.

@steanze
Any knowledge you can share about XiaoMingJia pots? I did some searching last year, and I couldn’t find much info. I have another XiaoMingJia pot from a reputable seller, so this term has been puzzling me :lol:

Mostly made in mid-late 80s, they have the artisan name stamped, clay quality and workmanship tends to be pretty decent, but they are not particularly rare or valuable. They are reasonable pots that tend to be available for reasonable prices.

Here’s an example of authentic 1940’s shui ping for comparison. The interior on you pot is a dead giveaway.





I’d avoid buying any pots from this seller since they are either dishonest or not very knowledgeable about zisha.

Nice late 80’s pot @DailyTX

It reminds me of the one I sold awhile back. I’m still on the look out for the heixingtu version of this one.

Second that.

Do not even have to look inside, the outside tells you everything you need to know.
