Introduction:
In ancient times, the immortal crane was “below one bird and above ten thousand birds”, which was second only to the Phoenix. The pattern woven by the official clothes of officials in the Ming and Qing Dynasties was immortal crane. At the same time, the immortal crane is the leader of the feather nationality because of its sage-like character and its outstanding behavior like that of immortals, known as Immortal’s demeanor and Taoist priest’s spirit 仙风道骨. It has been known as “first grade bird” since ancient times, which means the first on top. First grade is the name of the highest official rank in ancient times. All civil and military officials below the emperor are divided into nine grades, and first grade is the highest. Crane is also the most noble bird among birds, representing longevity and wealth.

Tea sets made from purple-clay is not normally glazed. A finished product is primarily purple, thus it is named. This pottery can be divided into different colors, such as purple-brown “purple clay” which is in amaranth or light purple; gray-yellow “green clay” in gray or gray-blue; vermeil “red clay” in red-brown. Purple-clay tea set has a long history in China. Su Shi, the great scholar of the Song Dynasty, had designed a pot with handle, called “Dongpo Pot with Loop Handle”.
