The body of the hand-made teapot may have handmade traces (Note: teapots of 100%

hand-made can’t be exactly the same as shown on the picture. So it is normal that in a few cases the

teapot may be very slightly different from that on the picture, however, the quality is always the same.)

Angel's Comment:

This cute Zisha Teapot with small capacity is great for enjoying gongfu tea at leisure moments.

Fanggu, written in Chinese as 仿古 (fǎng gǔ), is originally know as another phrase: 仿鼓 (fǎng gǔ). 仿鼓 means the teapot is modelled after the appearance of drum. This style started since Qing Dynasty. Till now people still make this teapot by imitating its old crafting style. So it is renamed as 仿古, meaning making the teapot in an antique style. This Antique Style Fanggu Yixing Teapot is small, short and plump. Inner wall is smooth and flat. Lid and pot perfectly fit with each other. The spout and handle are shaped in symmetrical position. This exquisite Yixing Teapot is an excellent choice for tasting good teas.

Made of Zhuni, this Handmade Antique Style Fanggu Yixing Zisha Teapot appears in red color with a light orange hue and looks fine and smooth. The teapot is simple and unadorned yet elegant and quaint. The teapot presents distinctive double pore surface covered with tiny corrugations on it, which makes the teapot able to breathe and reserves fragrance of tea.

Note: Warm the teapot before pouring boiling water promptly into it, for Zhuni has high constriction percentage and cannot resist instant temperature change.
