Yixing Teapot "Sleeping Old Man"

SOLD Decorative clay teapot in the shape of a sleeping old man. It is made using Zisha clay from Yixing in Jiangsu Province, China. This special "purple sand" clay has been used since the Song Dynasty (960-1279) - it is considered the best clay for teapots. The inside is unglazed, as is expected with Yixing teapots, so that with use, the tea will infuse into the body of the teapot and, over time, enhance the flavor of the tea. Includes presentation box and certificate of authentication from previous seller in China. Maker's mark on the bottom. No cracks or chips.
Silk Road Collection is proud to offer this Oriental treasure from the estate of Vaughn L. Banting, the noted collector, author, and bonsai expert.
