Round teapot of the 60s

Yet another round teapot of brown zisha clay in Alans Museum's collection. This particular teapot has the look and design of an antique teapot. The name Sinmei was engraved at the inside of the lid while there was nothing engraved at the bottom of the teapot. It could be made during the Cultural Revolution era where potters were not permitted to put their name behind their work. They were not supposed to glorify themselves in the things they did.

It is interesting to note that the designs of round teapot can be so diversified and different  that no two round teapots can look exactly the same.
