    Actually we came there to see...

    by jcarolj Written Oct 5, 2002

    Favorite thing: Actually we came there to see the famous porcelain. Factory is located in a rather small house, almost in one or two rooms. I had very funny feeling that how that one small room could be so famous. But as far as I fond of porcelain I am glad that I came here.
