Help translating stamps?

Postby ThetaLouis » 2016-10-01, 18:50

These are stamps on the bottom of two teapots that belong to my mother. She bought them in China a long time ago. Would appreciate if someone could translate, if possible? Thank you!

I posted images of the stamps at Post Image: https://postimg.org/gallery/159lupcwc/

Those are seals, not stamps, and the inscriptions there are written in seal script, which very few people can read these days and from which the modern Chinese writing system is descended. There might be a website somewhere that helps you with characters in seal script, though. Sorry and good luck! :)
