What I bring to you today is a classic among the classics--Mengchen Zhu Ni Dwarf Pear Pot, capacity: 120cc/Author: Hui Yunjie, post-90s powerful pottery hand, descendant of Hui Mengchen, a sage hand of Zhuni in the late Ming and early Qing dynasties , the transaction price of this pot in the 2022 Yunzangzhai Autumn Auction Ziyun Tiancheng Zisha Art Special: RMB 20,700.
The Zhuni pot style in Ming and Qing Dynasties has always been the favorite of countless tea lovers, one for its shape and the other for its taste. The works are made of selected top-grade vermilion clay, in Mugu pear style, elegant and moist, flat but not collapsed, shallow in body and wide in mouth. The lines are bulging and full, the flow of the pot and the handle are delicate and beautiful, just like the slender hands of a beautiful woman.
The flat lid has a pressure mouth, the lid surface is slightly thicker, and the pot button has a more design sense. The overall proportion is coordinated, the lines are soft and elegant, and the simple and honest color brings people a harmonious beauty that returns to the original.
