    Shattered teapot by accident. Need to replace with similar but must narrow story/folklore/ancient myth for search (billions of teapots online!). Does anyone know what "shaven children with tufts of hair" symbolize? or the story depicted on the teapot.

    There are lotuses, peaches, shaven children with braided tufts/ponytails, koi in clear bowl, a swan or egret. If anyone can translate the chinese characters as well as the stamp on the bottom, that would be helpful.

    Even more helpful if one knows where I can buy a similar replacement or has one for sale. It is NOT old, but was purchased in China. It is porcelain. The teapot is shallow, measures about 6 1/2 wide and 2 1/2 inches deep.

      I think that was just a standard Chinese hairstyle - no symbolism...
