Oldest pottery in the world found in China. Pottery fragments discovered in Xianrendong Cave in south China’s Jiangxi Province has been radiocarbon dated to 19,000-20,000 years ago making it the oldest pottery ever discovered. Over the past 10 years, ancient pottery finds in East Asia have upended the notion that the ceramics were invented around the time humans transitioned from hunting and gathering to agriculture, 10,000 or so years ago.

Vanaf 1909 volgden een reeks religieuze onderwerpen (Pinksteren en Avondmaal) en stillevens met primitieve plastieken en maskers.

Believe it or not, I did use this set at the beach and set the table with red geraniums. My beach club days are behind me yet when I set this table at home, the fond memories of my seaside days come flooding back. Some things in life do not last and when I set this table my children remark about eating breakfast at the beach on these plates. It's all about creating good memories even something so simple as a pretty blue plate. You can easily collect this by shopping on ebay!
