An delicate porcelain always gives you great pleasure. An porcelain with several hundred years of history is all the more valuable for collection.

A fews days ago, I visited Jing Ying Ge, an antique shop featuring porcelain wares of ancient China. The shop owner was a lover of antiques. He had been collecting antique porcelains for 15 years. Many items were as old as 1000 years.

He showed me his favorite - a white porcelain pot characterized by crackles on the surface. Behind this elegant porcelain, there is a story. Once there were two brothers, who were both famous porcelain ware makers in their town. The younger brother was jealous of the older brother, because his porcelains sold better. One day the younger brother scattered sand into the older brother's porcelain-making material, in order to sabotage his work.  Surprisingly,  it turned out that the sand gave beautiful golden stripes to the surface of the porcelain. Later, this kind of porcelains became very popular.. . 

Another notable piece was a covered pot made from precious green Kongque stone. Despite being over 600 years old, it was still in  good shape.

Falancai porcelain only existed in China for  a short period of time. I found a Kwan-yin statue made of falancai porcelain,a really precious item indeed.
