    Here is one for all you Oriental buffs.

    I bought this at a brocante in Poitiers France.

    I have no idea why except that I think it looks and feels fabulous to the touch.

    I think the texture is called crank. It is possibly quite new - but then again there is a little bit of age wear to the base.

    Also the three glazed dots in the matt circle might be a modern take on an old technique - putting the pot on it's side in the kiln then placing a tripod on top in order to place another pot on top of that - saving space.

    Can anyone tell me what the chop says on the base? Is it Chinese? And is the pot for saki?
