I forgot to post this treasure i found last month! This is a large blue-rimmed planter with a jojo bird and flowers and taotie mask handles applied to the outside. it's about 20 inches across and made in Guangdong Province, China [home of Shiwan]. This is a very rare and valuable piece treasured by the Peranakan people of Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia. It's also in incredibly good shape for it's age. I had it professionally appraised for insurance purposes by one of the top appraisers of Chinese pottery in the country - because it's such a rarity. I was very pleased with the results! i found this in a second-hand shop here in the East Bay. How it got here is a real mystery!
