Footnotes

  • The two-character mark qiutong probably refers to the designation of the potter, and the two-character mark yuanji probably refers to the family workshop. The incised inscriptions can be translated as 'the moonlight illuminates the mountain, the water fills the pound, made in the month of midspring'.

    The seal mark that reads Zhiyun shi zao is unknown from any traditional Yixing connoisseurship, whereas the name of the carver of the inscriptions, Liu Pei, has appeared on teapots made by Shao Jingnan. Current scholarship also suggests Liu Pei as an alternative name for the potter, see Wu Shan, Zhongguo zisha cidian, (The Thesaurus of Chinese Purple Clay Wares, 2007, p.129. The inscription can be translated as 'feelings of eternity'.

    The other two-character mark Huipu is probably the designation of an unknown potter.

    留佩一名並未有文獻記錄,但「留佩」刻款曾見於清道光邵景南所製茗壺上。見鴻禧藝術文教基金會編,《中國雅趣品路-宜興茶具》,台北,1990年,頁38,圖版46。一說留佩為清道光時邵景南之號,其所製壺深得古法,善於仿製明代茗壺形制,風格工整渾樸,見吳山,《中國紫砂辭典》,江蘇,2007年,頁129。
