There are literally hundreds of Yixing Pottery maker’s. Because I cannot read Chinese I have no idea what the maker’s mark says. Please refer to all photos to help identify maker. Yixing clay teapots, also called, ‘Zisha’, or Purple clay are made from Yixing clay. This traditional style of tea pot originated in China, dating back to the 15th century, and are made from clay produced near Yixing in the eastern Chinese province of Jiangsu.
This set includes one teapot with lid, five teacups and six saucers. Each piece is embossed with the makers mark. The teapot has birds with cherry blossoms and the teacups have just a cherry bloom on one side and writing on the other. The handles and spout are in the shape of bamboo. This set is in great condition with no chips, cracks or crazing. The teapot measures 4 inches tall and 6-1/2 inches spout to handle. The cups measure 1-3/4 inches tall and 2-3/4 inches diameter. The saucer plates measure 3-5/8 inches diameter. Please note that the saucers are each a little different in size. They all are super close to the same size.
