Yixing Inventory #21: Mengchen

February 18, 2021 · 2 Comments

Another typical “Mengchen” marked pot, which basically means nothing. These are wood chops, supposedly popular in the late Qing/Early Republic era. The pot is an interesting purple brown, with a smooth skin. The lid is very loose on this one, sitting a bit awkwardly on the pot, but it is otherwise quite functional. 130ml.

    It’s a very unique colour , and I like the shape of the handle , can’t stop looking at its handle for some reasons.

      The colour is an odd dark brown with a tint of green, and the light brown spots are chuff marks where the surface is uneven. It’s an odd one.

      Hope you and your family are well.
