You can't Cook in these Pots

[ From: David Cheng | Published: 2007-10-24 Views: 1536 | Booked times: 54 ]

For much of China¡¯s history, clay pots were the most common tools for storage and cooking. So much so that pottery making became an art that can be both ornamental and practical. Other than for making certain unique dishes, pottery today are used mainly for their aesthetic appearance as decorations.


Lu Bo Zhai, located in the well-known Antique region of Panjiayuan, carries a myriad of unearthed pots, containers, and reproductions. The reproductions come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and seem weathered to look like true antiques. However, despite being reproductions, these are quality potteries, made by skilled potters. Prices start at RMB 200.


While the reproductions are enough for casual buyers, the store has several real antique unearthed pots. These are fully authenticated and have attracted the attention of many archaeologists. The best of these were buried with their owners over a thousand years ago. As for the price, all true antiques carry at least a six-figure price tag (in RMB).


The owner has an intimate knowledge of Chinese pottery. So, please feel free to ask him any question about it to make your visit more fruitful.
