Angel's Comment:

Without any decoration, this teapot interprets the real charm of Nixing pottery with a simple shape.

Whether it is a Nixing teapot or a Zisha teapot, many of their modeling ideas come from our daily life. The teapot maker got inspiration from life and then extracted the shape of a teapot. Qinquan teapot is one of the typical representatives, its appearance comes from the very common weighing tool, which is called "quan" (权) in ancient China. The reason why the character "Qin" (秦) is added in front is because Emperor Qin Shihuang unified the weights and measures, so that the weighing tool is based on the " weight " of Qin Dynasty, therefore people call it "Qinquan".
