Hello,

Is there anyone here able to translate these chop marks?

Sometime ago I bought a Chinese teaset of teapot, six teacups and six plates.

I was told that they came from the Purple Clay Teapot Museum in Wuxi China. Since then I have been told that they are simply modern forgeries of Yixing teapots! So what are they? I did not pay much for them but I would like any information about them. Apparently the mark under the lid is similar to the one used by Jiang Rong!! But I am sure these were not made by her.

If anyone can shed light on these that I would be very grateful.

From the information that you have given they seem likely to be modern copies of older pieces that could well have originated from the souvenir shop at the Teapot Museum you refer to.

Therefore I think "forgeries" is not the correct word. In China and Japan for centuries people have copied important ceramic work from the past. This isn't with the intention of deception but to pay homage to the work. Some of these older copies are now collected. They only become forgeries if a dealer seeks to pass them off as original with a price that the original would fetch.

I can't read the marks and haven't seen anything like this before but the above is based on my knowledge of Japanese and, to a lesser extent, Chinese ceramics.

Finally, I have moved this thread to ID My Pottery where it has more chance of being seen.

Thanks studio-pots for the quick reply.
I have been in communication with another forum where I was informed that the colour has possibly been produced using toxic chemicals! I was warned not to try and make tea in the pot! They also told me that this was most likely not a Yixing teapot ... so, does the marks help clarify this?

I have no idea of this mark or any other Chinese marks. I assume that the mark it a copy of the mark that would have been on the original. Marks on much of the Chinese ceramics that you are likely to come across will have marks that relate to the original piece and when it was made rather than when the piece you are actually holding was made or where it was produced.

It might be on the Gotheborg site, or might just say Purple Clay Teapot Museum
