Yixing Hungni round Teapot
Volume: 140 ml (14 cl)
Weight: 104.9 grams
The clay is Hungni, but it looks like modern zhuni. It was fired at a high temperature: the cover produces a high pitched sound when it touches the body of the teapot.
The details of this teapot show good craftsmanship. The long walls under the cover are typical of ancient designs. The knob is also slightly elevated and easy to grab. The handle's shape looks like a ear. The spout is shaped like a woman's leg. And the lid has a beautiful concentric design.
It was made in Yixing approximately 10 years ago. It's in new condition. This teapot has a single hole. It performs best with fresh, high mountain Oolongs. There's a poem in calligraphy under the teapot (Yu Hou Shi Quan Ming). It means that after the rain, the stone well sings. And it is signed Mengchen.
