Over the years Gotheborg.com has become a meeting place for some of the most knowledgeable Antique Asian Art and Ceramics dealers, authors, scholars and collectors in the world. Some of which have written or published books on the subject, and been kind enough to donate a copy to the Gotheborg.com reference library. Some has generously donated antiquarian catalogs and reference books from their own libraries, all of which are now kept as an important part of the reference library used for this site. As a small sign of gratitude I have taken the liberty to list your names here.
The Gotheborg web page went online first time in 26th of November 1996 under the by Jan-Erik Nilsson registered domain gotheborg3.se, to focus mostly on the Swedish East India Trade to China during the 18th century. In 1996 it changed name and focus towards a Chinese and Japanese Porcelain Collectors Help and Information page. The 27th of June 1999 an email list was added. In April 23, 2003 the discussions were moved into a private Discussion Board to avoid spam and guarantee continuity. Over the years many people have joined this collectors community, made friends, had fun and on the whole contributed to make the world a little better place.
