Footnotes

  • Wang Yinchun (1897 - 1977) is well-known for his efficient yet high standard production of teapots in various forms. It is said Wang used to make more than ten pieces each day without any compromise on the quality of a single teapot. For a almost identical teapot made by Wang Yinchun, currently collected in the Yixing Pottery Museum, see Gu Jingzhou (ed.) Yixing zisha zhenshang, Hong Kong, 1992, p.181, pl.181.

    王寅春款紫泥六方抽角壺

    「寅春」
    「王寅春」

    壺身作六瓣梅花狀,三彎長流,正耳把,壺蓋、壺鈕亦一氣呵成,線條相通,壺蓋六面皆可換置,平整吻合,壺蓋內鈐「寅春」篆書小印。壺深腹,從肩部向下漸斂,腹壁筋紋自然流暢。整壺曲中帶方,古樸中呈現大雅之度。

    該壺原配一織繡提袋,袋亦作六邊形,與壺交相呼應,其中一面縫一小槽,使得壺流露出,外側每面及袋帽均繡蝴蝶花草,精美別緻。

    王寅春製壺技術全面,工藝卓越,曾以快速、高質著名,相傳一日能做十多件,而精工不減。該壺與宜興陶瓷陳列館藏一件王寅春製六方抽角壺如出一轍,見顧景舟編,《宜興紫砂珍賞》,香港,2008年,頁181,圖版181。更多有關王寅春生平,參看拍品566腳註。
