Antique treasures

These pots tell long stories of the past and are rarities that move my heart. To imagine and to see what they have gone through and how their past was, makes these pots very special and very alive. They are jewels in my collection and in accordance with their age I treat them very fondly. If you by chance have any antique pots for sale or know other sources, I would be very happy if you contact me directly.

Dragon pot

This pot was made around 1950 or even earlier in the city of Foshan (Chinese 佛山市 Fóshān shì) and there probably in the former township Shiwan (石湾 区). It is an ornate decor cascade pot which also was brought to Germany by Paul Lesniewicz about 1979/1980 and became part of his private collection. Later (about 1999) it became part of Peter Krebs' private collection, where it was for about 13 years until I obtained it in 2012. The size of the pot is: 21 cm x 21 cm x 45.5 cm. It means a lot to me. Peter Krebs calls it one of the most beautiful dragon shells that he has ever seen. Not least because of this it belonged to Peter Krebs' private collection for many years.
