I have had this teaset for a number of years not really knowing much about it.
I have been told it comes from the purple clay teapot museum as a limited edition of 100. I was informed that the mark on the lid is the mark of Jiang Yong, who may have given approval of the set but she was not the maker. Military green was a 20th century innovation.
Can someone tell me what the marks are in English? I was told that the mark on the base said "made in Yixing China" - is that correct?
I look forward to your response.
Also I have acquired two other teapots and a couple of bronze items which I will post on here soon.
