i used to see these around more, but not too many any more. does anyone know what they are called, value, when they were made or anything else about them?

    hi, these huge Chinese dragon pots were used to transport ( or store ?) "thousand year eggs", a Chinese delicacy. I don't know if they are still in production today but I would think not.

    thank you oldster2. i tried those a few times and wasn't too crazy over them. in thailand, we called them 'kai sao ma' or something like that and they were very popular. i was cleaning these jars yesterday and found barnacles under the lips of them which means they were in the ocean for awhile. i wonder why?

    i have thought about drilling these so many times to plant in them, and have hesitated each time. i've got a bunch of them now and think i'll drill some to plant them. these must have been stored in the bay for a long time because i found barnacles under the lips on this one. maybe they were thrown into the bay and then pulled out a while later?

    Love the inward color. I have a small hand size bowl with that same color. Thomas.
