Antique Chinese Porcelain Collector's Help and Info Page

Ed./Corp.: Jan-Erik Nilsson, Gothenburg, Sweden.
Language: English.

Self description: "This fully searchable web site is dedicated to the needs
and interests of the collectors of Antique Chinese and Japanese Porcelain.
It currently offers 1.3 Gb (1,300 Mb) worth of Chinese and Japanese
collectors information as in text and pictures. [...]"

Description: Although this site also contains a commercial part, the
information on the world of chinese and japanese ceramics is of very good
quality. There is a section on marks (including historic and modern
imitations), a glossary with more than 500 entries, a chapter on the Swedish
India Company and the excavation of the Gotheborg, an annotated list of
books on ceramics, and an active discussion list (requires registration), to
name just a few. A drawback is the sheer size of the site and the lack of a
clear defined sub-structure. One can easily get lost or end up in frames
that load instead of the navigation. Despite these flaws it is a very useful
