5 teapot shapes

This teapot is part of a collection of 5 classic teapot shapes called Wu Xing Hu in Chinese (5 shapes teapot). We start this collection with the 線瓢 (Xiàn piáo) or 芭樂 (Bālè) shape. Both names (scoop and guava) suggest a round shape in a poetic way.
The material used is natural hongni clay fired at a high temperature. Single hole filter.
This teapot is approximately 10-20 years old. It has a black iron spot on its right side, but this doesn't impact the tea brew.It performs well with most ball shaped Oolongs or aged sheng or shu puerh.
The small seal under the teapot says 'Jingxi Zhu zhi'.
