In the 13th year of the Republic of China (1924), potters were dispersed due to the effects of the fighting in Qi Lu, Jiang Zhe Province. The production of purple sand tea pots also declined sharply. Another war broke out at the beginning of the 14th year of the Republic of China (1925), which slowly subsided in the latter half of the year. Toward the end of the year, Zhao Songting (趙松亭) raised funds to rebuild the Long Kiln, which was renamed the Fuxing Kiln, and produced exclusively red clay horizontal jars called "gong pots (貢壺)". In the early period, the two-character inscription "貢局" or "贡壶" was placed on the bottom of the jar.
