This is a "Shou Tao Bao Chun" teapot, made from original ore from the Zisha factory (Known as the First Zisha Factory), using old purple clay material. The texture of the clay is mellow, possessing the unique taste of old material. It imitates the classic representative "Bao Chun" shape of the esteemed master artist Zhu Kexin, with a capacity of 170cc, making it a small piece for a decorative-style teapot, undoubtedly increasing the difficulty of its production.

The body of the teapot is shaped like a chicken heart, elegant and dignified, with rounded shoulders and a flat bottom. The mouth of the teapot tapers, and the mouth and lid fit tightly together. The lid of the teapot slightly curves upwards, forming a full arc, with a piece of tree stump emerging from the top, twisted and curled into the knob of the lid. On the side of the lid, a peach tree branch grows, lively and graceful, with smooth lines and vivid three-dimensional details, exuding an ancient charm. The flow and handle are also constructed in the shape of a tree stump, with sturdy branches and elegant peach blossoms and leaves, truly admirable!

The original ore purple clay is a classic type of Zisha clay that is quite common. There are few good quality ones and many inferior ones. It has a purple-brown color and is often called "black purple clay" by players. It is one of the clay materials that players love. The products made from it have a pure texture, even sand particles, a pleasing color, a warm and delicate feel, not too bright or flashy, and are like small pieces of jade. It is refined from the original purple clay ore excavated from the Huanglongshan vein in Yixing, Jiangsu Province. Because the iron content in the vein is relatively high, the particles in the clay are larger and the structure is loose, which makes the body of the vessel obviously a special double air-hole structure. The air convection is smooth, and the air holes have good convection. This gives Yixing purple clay teapots the characteristics of quick heat transfer, and strong heat preservation, and is conducive to maintaining the temperature and color, aroma, and taste of tea when brewing.
