Message from Seller:

I became interested in the Ceramic Arts; specifically Ancient Chinese Pottery, when my brother Marc; also an art dealer, introduced it to me over 20 years ago. Since then I traveled throughout Asia; including Hong Kong, Japan, and Korea, in search for those special pieces that appeal to the discerning collector, as well as the Designer Market.
