    Antique Chinese and Japanese Pottery and Porcelain collector's Discussion Board
    The Gotheborg Discussion Board and related web pages was started in December 1998 to continue the tradition of scholarly generosity set by my own special mentor Prof. em Bo Gyllensvard, by creating a place where collectors and specialists alike, could combine their expertise in their various areas into one big knowledge resource. Here, a global collector's community can share their experiences towards unbiased appreciation, understanding and authentication of Antique Asian Ceramic Art while passing on this hard to acquire material knowledge on real antiques onto students and beginner collector's at the same time.

    The fundamental idea is to encourage learning and mutual help in an increasingly difficult field, while putting all commercial considerations aside.

    With the help of many thousand contributing members this Discussion Board has now grown into a large and much appreciated collector's resource. As of June 2020 we already had more than 340,000 messages posted on more than 32,000 individual pages covering 73 various topics from Neolithic Age to the 21th century, why the best way to start any quest for information is to first use our Search link (top right), before posting a question to the Board.

    All user data are kept confidential and advertising is not allowed, why we depend on a modest membership fee to keep this forum on-line. Voluntary donations towards an optional listing as a [ Sponsors ] is also appreciated. For more info about our Forum please read our [ Board Rules - Policies, Participation and Privacy ]. To sign up or renew your Membership, click here.

    The road to learning should be traveled in good company.

    The shape of a piece is probably the most important clue to the identification of an item with regard to its authenticity and period. This category is for the discussion on the uniqueness (not just the shape of course) of a particular kind of ware that has been produced throughout a significant period of time in the history of Chinese ceramics like meiping; yuhuchun jar; ginger jar, Gu etc.
