I thought I share a recent find at a Estate sale a mid 18th century Chinese Western Export ware dish. the Gold rim was most likely added in Europe before export. One of the oldest pieces I have found this year. Wasn't bad for a $4 purchase not the cheapest purchase but close. Oriental is hard to find where I live in Central Ill. People didn't collect or decorate their homes and dealers real don't have any for sale or want to . So I buy all that I can find at the local sales provided its older pieces 1930's is about as new as I get and it has to be the high quality pieces. Its like treasure hunting when I go to the sales and find something old.
