Liuligongfang is chinese for Glass Factory.
My cousin took us to a restaurant in Shanghai that is owned by Mr Wang, I think, and decorated all over with their glass.

Also saw quite a bit of it in Hong Kong in a most beautiful gallery, although I can't remember the name.

As with anything, there are pieces that one loves and others that perhaps are not so breathtaking, but overall this is a most outstanding factory.

Well done. Max! I've been waiting to see if anyone found this, in respect of the previous debate about Chinese glass!

 :D

Max:
Thanks for that link Ivo...it seems you were right, as usual!  :D  That link is a fascinating account of triumph over adversity - it's amazing really that they managed to keep going, isn't it?

This particular piece is called 'Without Boundaries', I'm not sure if it's terribly valuable, but it is to me anyway.  I love huge lumps of glass.   :D  

Adam, I'm very glad to have been able to show it on the boards.  The restaurant you saw in Hong Kong sounds fabulous.  Wish I could have seen it.    xx

Max:
I had an email from Liuligongfang - they sent me some details about 'Without Boundaries'.

Most of it was what I knew already from the enclosed booklets...but they gave the price too.  I know we don't usually use prices, but I'm going to anyway.   :wink:  :shock:


US$1250

 :shock:  :shock:  :shock:  :D  :D

I would faint, but I'm sitting down luckily.   :lol:
