I think I have a different definition of teaboat, I meant the ceramic plate. Didn't know about the table felt though
I was talking about the ceramic! The tiny felt is actually a dried loofa interior, used for washing the dishes or for teapots as it has no odours.
Pretty cool! Never heard of that
It is even mentioned in some Chaozhou tea masters writings as the must have for gong fu cha to protect the teapot from accidental breaking.

Been browsing some local classifieds looking for old macau stuff lately or any tea related antiques.
After tons of overpriced/poor condition stuff I found an old macau gaiwan at a decent price, looks 70s/80s same stamp as the cup I posted earlier in this thread.
Gaiwan itself is medium thickness, lid is fairly thin though, at 150ml its very nice to drink directly from.

A pot I got a while back in a lucky eBay find: export porcelain, with fixed spout and handle, also non-matching lid. This kind of make shift repairs are quite frequently found in export China.

I love it’s quirkiness!

A bit too large for frequent use, but still a nice piece.

Yes, nice body on this pot. I’ve seen many older 18th 19thC pots with seemingly oversized lids. Does the inner diameter fit well inside pot rim?
Here is a 19thC example from the Frick collection.

Yes, perfect fit. The colour of the glazing is a slightly different hue.

Previous piece reminded me, saw a cool looking porcelain pot on display at a museum in Porto, label said 1735, relatively small, perhaps 300ml.
