    So, it is pewter over Yixing? If so make sure you use that keyword when/if listing.
    It is always good to ID the mark but as I said before the Chinese will figure it out.

    Good Luck!

    Thank you,all....I am hoping someone on the board can ID the mark...I am also waiting to see if the shop,where I purchased it,can locate the lid.

    Hate to be pessimistic but the way much of the top has begun to separate from the rest looks pretty bad. No problem if u want to keep it as flowerpot or whatever. I don't think it is repairable within a reasonable cost. If u intend to resell be sure to put "as is" in the description and include good photos of damaged area. I don't know much about this area but hope u got it cheap since it'll be difficult to sell.

    Even so, someone will buy it for the parts. Score!

    I think if somebody bought pots without any marks for big money, it would be good price already just with description: "Marked" ;)

    We don't know if the ones from the sold link are unmarked. The artist name maybe in some of the inscriptions.On the other hand, just because a piece is marked it does not mean anything. Has to be the right mark:) Plus, pairs always bring much more than single pieces.
    Anyways, hope you do good with the sale.

    The link was to two separate auctions, not a pair :happy:

    The second one was also marked on the bottom, the seller didn't ID the mark.
