Product name: Square-Shaped Chuan Lu Teapot
Clay: Family Collection Xiaomeiyao Zhu Ni
Capacity: 310 CC
The interior of the teapot is painted with vivid pine trees and ancient people admiring the distance from a boat.
The exterior is engraved with the phrase "壶上春秋志，茶中日月长" (A teapot records the changes of spring and autumn, while tea accompanies the cycle of day and night) with a strong and powerful style.
Xiaomeiyao Zhu Ni is a precious type of purple clay, with high shrinkage and high slurry content. After firing, high-grade ore will show wrinkles. Although the surface of the pot looks flat, there are many fine and closely natural shrinkage flow patterns on the side, which is known as "No wrinkle, no Zhu".
The Chun Lu Teapot is one of the popular teapot styles during the late Qing Dynasty. It embodies superb craftsmanship and rich cultural connotations. It has the solemnity and stability of bronze ware, and is a model of square and circle coexisting. When viewed from the side, the teapot body is round and when viewed from above, it appears square. This reflects the Taoist principle of integrating heaven and earth into a square and circle. The three-curve spout is short and thick, the handle is round with square sides, and the four legs are separated like a tripod. The whole teapot is elegant, powerful, and dignified.
