I have a hand-thrown teapot, redware...I think. Not very big, 5.5 inches tall. Has long pointed open spout. WEIRD THING it has a flat slate stone on the bottom and black soot covers some of it. The stone has some cracks (from use on a camp fire) in it but is still sound.
The pot was thrown above and around the stone. It has five quasi-Native American suns around it for a design. No names, marks, etc.
Anybody ever heard of using rocks for tea pots?
I thought I posted this before...went looking for it. May 6, 2008...Nobody responded, nobody. Here's my old post:
Also just above my May 8, 2008 post I had another post showing some ironstone tumblers. I've since discovered these are crucibles for the taking of molten samples of smelted ore to determine purity.
