Besides all the 1000+ beautiful bonsai, suiseki stones and figurines, there also is a very long gallery filled with ancient bonsai pots in Mr. Wu Cheng-Fa’s amazing bonsai gallery in Shenzhen – Qu Yi Garden (趣怡园).

The pot on the left is made of peach clay (桃花泥) and the pot on the right is made of purple clay (aka zisha clay, 紫泥).  Beautiful carving work, full of details.

These few pots are from the Qing dynasty.  I remember I saw some bonsai pots in the gallery that are from period as early as the Yuen dynasty (A.D. 1271-1368).
