I think the dark color inside the lid maybe tea stain. If you look at the first set of photos I posted, it’s darker. The photos I posted today are after a 30 minutes boil with water. The pot displays more red.
I doubt it’s a tea stain, the inside of the lid is usually the cleanest part of any used pot.

Nice score! Where did you find this pot? Looks very similar to one I saw on auction recently.
@Chadrinkincat
From a tea/yixing shop in Canada. Definitely not the one on auction you saw, could be the same batch tho ;) , tiehuaxuan imported a lot of pots to Japan

@DailyTX must be The Chinese Tea Shop? One of the few having antiques on offer in the West. As far as I can tell their pots look legit.

By the way, saw your awesome prize, the 60s hongni shuiping, from your hunt, do those 60s hongni shuipings come in a bigger size like 120-150 ml? Just curious...

Yes, the one I have on sale is the smallest size, there are larger ones as well. More expensive though.
I know for sure of 6-cup size, so that would be 120ml. The other measurements I let others comment, concentrating my learning efforts more on the older pots these days :mrgreen:

There are 120ml and 160ml. They can easily cost $700+

@steanze
Thank you for the pricing info. If I encountered one, I have an idea on the cost

A recent addition of mine. A modern zhuni pot, 85ml, high fired, and extremely thin. Performance is great for most teas but teas where fragrance is important are probably best suited to the pot. I use it for most teas, giving it a boiling water rinse afterwards, not dedicating it. Improves mouthfeel giving the tea a luscious texture. Very happy with this pot. Btw, these pictures are not mine, but taken by the previous owner.

Very nice pot!
It is a shame how rare it's to find a small, modern yixing pot these days... Heard that most in china don't like them, thus they're not made.
A <60ml zhuni teapot would be just a sublime find.... I'll have to do with my chaozhou pot, which isn't yixing, but works fine most of the time.

I would say finding them is not the issue, paying for them is! Everything can be commissioned if you have the funds :)

Rather than Chaozhou, thin hongni is a good alternative to Zhuni. Most modern Zhuni is hongni anyways (also, technically Zhuni is the top layer of Hongni).

Nice find @Teachronicles. I also have a thin walled modern zhuni that I can use with many teas since the fired clay is so tight. Was going to say I really like the cloth in the picture, but I see it isn’t yours, oh well.
