I've just been browsing through Peter von Brackel's book on Bohemian weights and thinking what a marvelous job he's done with so little readily-available information.
This set me to thinking about modern Chinese weights, which appear to be improving in quality and design all the time. Do we know where they come from and who makes them? Are there many factories? One huge one? Small workshops? Any individual makers that stand out? Whereabouts in China are they made?
I've just realised I don't know the answer to any of the above, and wondered if anybody else did? I can just see, in a few years time, a scramble to try and find all that out when, as with the Bohemian weights, many of the records will have been lost.
Soooooo, any sources of info on modern Chinese (maybe I've just missed the eight-volume reference set...)?
