This firm strong pot is well designed and carved. It has nice calligraphy and a good mark in the base, telling us it was made in Yixing The seal of the maker, Meng Chen is deeply incised in the inside of the cover. Probably made around 1900. Originally for commercial use. We have been asked to report on the inside: it is clean but not cleaned up. No cracks or hidden hairline fractures. Very good condition.
