Hello For about 6 month ago I bought a big teaset at a second hand store for 200SEK (about 25$). Now this was a big set with two teapots, two pitchers and 12 cups with scenting cups plus a teatray.
Since it's so big set and some have been interested of it in my tea shop (I use it as prop for photos etc) I'm planning to sell half of it (minus the tea tray since it's cracked). I'm fairly certain that it's Yoxing and fairly is okay for me considering the price. But if I'm going to sell it I want to be 100% sure if itäs yixing or not.
What I know The smell is earth/sand/stone ish more stone than earth though. With a hint of tea, I have used it. the texture is quite smooth but not enterily, you can still feel that it's clay In the inside you can se that someone have formed the pot (looks almost like small scratches) The tone when I scrape it is high and the pour is good.
The pitchers have the same stamp that looks like Zhong Guo Yixing the others havn't I been able to identify. The teapots have different stamps and the round one is slightly more heavy than the one with a uncommin handle.

I think it looks and feels like yixing but like I said, I like to be sure
