Yixing Inventory #21: Mengchen

Another typical “Mengchen” marked pot, which basically means nothing. These are wood chops, supposedly popular in the late Qing/Early Republic era. The pot is an interesting purple brown, with a smooth skin. The lid is very loose on this one, sitting a bit awkwardly on the pot, but it is otherwise quite functional. 130ml.

    • The colour is an odd dark brown with a tint of green, and the light brown spots are chuff marks where the surface is uneven. It’s an odd one.

      Hope you and your family are well.
