Cleaning job

Another pot awaiting a big clean

Yes, it’s very dirty. The pot is covered in stains of some sort or another, and the inside of the pot is filthy

This is, supposedly anyway, a Tiehuaxuan pot from the Republican period. Is it authentic? I can’t say for sure (few things are “for sure” in the teapot world). I can say though the little lion on top of the lid is much better done than most of the other ones I’ve seen. I usually am no fan of this design, but this pot caught my eye.

For the cleaning this time, I’m going to try something new

Yup, you read that right. Let’s see how it turns out.

  1. Tea pot addiction is far better, I think, than the other pot addiction. This is an absolutely beautiful pot to my eyes, foo dog and all. And a smiling foo dog at that! Smiling at his nice new home and soon to be beautiful pot. I’d smile too. eileen
