As far as I know, yixing ware is bare clay. When I first saw it I thought it was enamelled metal with a Tibetan style of decoration. It looks like it has an applied brown wash to make it appear to have some age. That points to a modern piece; what the collectors call a “fantasy” piece because nothing is quite right; from the decoration and glaze to the mark on the base.
