Who knows much about clay teapots? (Thrift shop teapot)
Geez, can we trade thrift shops? Lol the ones near me almost never have any teaware besides the occasional British style pots/sets.
The bamboo teapot looks like a yixing, is there a stamp on the bottom? I don’t think I’ve seen any with writing carved into the lid.
I’d recommend poking around teachat.com (another forum) I prefer the Steepster community, but there’s some folks on Teachat that are very knowledgeable about teawares, and you’ll probably have a better chance of finding someone who can read the engravings there too.
Yes, after not getting much info here beyond what I already knew, I hit up teachat. They were indeed able to help me. Someone was able to translate the seals at least and I found one of them:
And while perhaps not accurate, suggests they are selling them for 580-800 yuan, which is $93-129; which means, I got a deal for two dollars.
