From the “YiXing” area of China's Jiangsu Province , widely considered the pottery capital of the China, these pots are simple, elegant, and shaped by hand. In fact, you'll find the craftsman's mark on the bottom of every pot. Each pot is made from the purple clay found near the Yangtze River, the best material there is for bonsai pots. Like with all Vintage pots, we do not clean them prior to photography. We estimate this pot to be approximately 20 years old. It's a fantastic pot, the glaze is crackled and if you'd like to clean it, it will shine up nicely. However, we generally do not recommend cleaning vintage pots. Enjoy them for what they are.
