An old 3-legged pot

This is an old pot made of fine zisha clay. It stands on 3 legs and at the base of the pot there is a China Yixing seal stamped on it.

The pot was probably made in the 70s. When I bought the pot from a shop in Chinatown in the late 80s, the shop keeper told me that it was around 20 years old. I like the pot as the clay is good and the design is unique. Moreover it is ideal for brewing my type of tea.

There are not many such pots around today as I did not see any around in the market in the 90s.
