chop/seal identification

Post  dorothy7774 on Fri Dec 27, 2013 3:22 pm

Can anyone please identify this pot maker? It's probably nothing special. Had it for years. I am planning to plant a sales tree in it and just want to make sure.

Thanks!

Hey Dorothy.

I've cleaned up the office which means that now I can't find anything... but I had a pot just like this. Anonymous Chinese, but a nice pot. I like the design, nice to see something not so run-of-the-mill.

Thanks Russell! Yes, nice pot. I might just keep it.

Happy Holidays!

Yes, that's a factory standard brown zisha Yixing clay chop. Yixing refers to the county of China where the this brown zisha clay is from. These days, Yixing pots can be mass produced outside of Yixing county in government factories which shamelessly copy the same seals as the Yixing towns that make traditional Yixing teapots. I think the government recognizes the worldwide commercial appeal for the Yixing brand names (which are actually districts in Yixing). Unglazed Yixing pots are well suited for bonsai because of its porosity and minimalistic artistic appeal which lends itself to the bonsai art form.

My Yixing teapot collection is currently packed in boxes.

Wiki has a character list of Yixing towns for those who are curious to check where their could be from:
