Yuting's (友廷) bell shaped teapot

Shao Yuting (邵友廷) was a famous potter who was active during the late 19th century.

Alans Museum has a teapot made by Yuting in its collection. This teapot has the shape of an ancient bell. It was authenticated by Prof Pan when he was in Singapore holding his solo exhibition of Yixing teapots and promoting his masterpieces. The teapot is purplish brown in colour and Prof commented that the clay used for this teapot is of high quality pure zisha clay.
