Chinese characters on teapot

lonny tao

Recommended Posts

I have a little yixing teapot for decoration.

There are some Chinese characters on it but what it means...somebody can tell me?

And some small characters, maybe the name of the fabric?

A better photo for the small characters was not possible.

The verse on the teapot is 野店臨西浦,門前有橘花 (a little inn next to the west side of river bank, there are orange flowers in front of its door) from a Tang Dynasty poem "宿江店" .


Here is a calligraphy work about this peom and the caption reads "Lodging at a Hotel by River" -> http://www.ly-tw.net/photos/2012ex/x14.html


I can't read the picture on the right, too blurry.

Thanks for the translation.

Its a part of a poem, thats nice.

I asked the man in the shop that sell me this teapot, a Chinese man but he did not know.

The last picture, I already said its not good but these characters are verry small so a good photo is not possible.

Maybe I try again.
