Unglazed Purple Teasets at Yixing
design: 李印清 & 王虎鳴

Tree Legs tea pot from Ming Dynasty (top), Four Legs Square tea pot (second) and Bamboo Bunch tea pot (thrid) from Qing Dynasty and modern pot with handle (bottom).  All made in typical cray from Yixing area and they are for Oolong Tea.

上から明朝の「三足円壺」、の時代の2点「四足方壺」と「八卦束竹壺」そして現代の「提壁壺」。どれも烏龍茶などの青茶と呼ばれるタイプのお茶をいれるための宜興の紫砂茶壷のようです。いろいろな形を見かけますが、さすがに切手に選ばれたものはバランスのとれた美しい形です。
