Posted By: Janos Kalaszdi Sat, Oct 06, 2018 IP: 10.144.235.167,82.13

Hi everyone,I bought this lovely tea pot with four teacup! Am not sure how old they are, but some of cracking!
These have a same beautiful design and the same Chinese writing.

The inscription is a Chinese Spring Festival couplet. ( In my rough translation)
爆竹聲中一歳除
春風送暖入屠蘇
千門萬戸瞳瞳日
總把新桃換舊符
Amid the din of crackers goes the departing year
The winds of spring bring warmth to help the wine mature
In every home the sun imparts its brighter rays
Old peachwood charms, renewed 'gainst evil shall insure

Maradva tisztelettel,
I.Nagy

曹涯其 - Cao Yaqi

Dear I Nagy

Thank you very much for the translation, very interesting!
Do you see anything about how old or which dynasty?
Thank you in advance!
Tisztelettel

Dear János,

I would like to know if there is any maker's mark on the bottom of cups and teapot.Frankly speaking from the pictures it doesn't look very old.

Üdvözlettel,
I.Nagy

Dear I Nagy
Thank you for the response!
I believe not easy or possible to examine the porcelain age by photos, or Im the kind of person who like to touch and take things more closely!
I thought it has some age, cos I discovered the pot and one of the teacup are fully Crazing, the rest three got just few hearlines!
So I was thinking if this is imitation, so if these pieces just made to be look like old, then not the whole five pieces supposed to be look the same?
I thought maybe only one person used it, that's why only one of the cap has Crazing!
There is no any mark on the bottom, only the red seal mark next to the writing!

Üdvözlettel
Janos
