Antique Teapots, Saigon

Lê Công Kiều, a small street near Saigon’s Museum of Fine Arts, is lined with antique shops. These teapots with traditional designs look bronze, so I am assuming they are bronze. All of them may be genuine antiques or some of them may be newly minted and made to look old in a factory somewhere in Vietnam. One never knows in antique shops. Buyer beware unless you know what you are doing. I am not a collector of stuff in any case, so walking away with a photo or two is more than enough to satisfy me.
