Dear chloebird, Very nice. I have to say, I like your bowl better than mine. I like the technique that was used, more sophisticated. Let me know if you are able to discover its origin. I think the nu...
Dear chloebird, It's easy to see that our bowls are related. I like yours, it has a great green color, and yours appears undamaged. Mine has seen some usage, although I don't know what for, maybe som...
Hi Chloebird, Wow, to be honest, I have not even thought of this bowl for years now. Yes, it is very unusual, and difficult to pin down. Can you please post photos of yours with the features you have...
Dear Ho2, I think that date is wishful thinking on FB's part. More research before I would ever date that piece that early, especially if you plan to sell it. This link should help, http://www.gotheb...
Also, almost always the single blue ring on the base indicates Japanese.
Dearest H02, No question, this is Japanese, most likely Taisho period (1913-1926), with a mark that copies the mark of the Ming dynasty Chenghua period. Nice find, in decent condition from what I see...
Wow Rlapherino, Thanks a million for that, that signature has driven me crazy.
Bravo, most people who are not knowledgable in Asian ceramics would have no idea how incredible this find is. OUTSTANDING! I just bought two plates in red & silver but with only a two character mark. ...
Thanks Sean, I knew you would appreciate them. Thanks Always.
Dear Penny, So great to hear. Many blessings on your new home. I look forward to hearing what Bonhams might say, its a lovely rare piece. Best of luck, always, Kirk
Dear Inky, What every advice you listen to, contact a house like Bonhams before proceeding. Maybe my post is too late, but this is a rare find, and deserves great care. Regards, Kirk
Thanks Inky for looking. Cheers...
Yes Wow is the word. I think these are amazing, and will keep my eyes open to identify them, awesome find. Congrats...
Love it, nice to know the size too. :-)
Dear Ihavewhatyouneed, Love to see them, these are very valuable, never have I seen another let alone a set. Regards, Kirk
Dear HO2, I would have to guess that they are from later half of 20th Century. But that does not detract from the fact that they are well made, and well executed. I believe the I-Fay is the distribut...
Well HO2, I was my pleasure to assist with your joy, as it is such a nice find. Especially when you don't expect it... In my realm these pieces would be good to study to learn about the difference be...
Yes HO2, The more you look at them, the more you realize how special those are. I would be please to make such a find. This one of my areas, so I find you did very well. Regards, Kirk
Dear HO2, they are really a remarkable pair of vases, if you look at the inscription on the side in Chinese, even the characters are different, that is very nice. Regards, Kirk
Dear HO2, Please note, there are many differences in the painting of the vase, so that makes them non-mirror, and more collectible than mirror image vases which are more common. Let me know if that ...
Nice pair HO2, Not sure who made them, looks like an importers stamp. Question is the red stamp a wax stamp or permanent? Those are collectible though because they are not mirror image of each ot...
Thanks Vetraio50 :-)
Dear TubeAmp, I guess I missed your last comment somehow. What makes you think they are not lead. My jeweler said they were lead with Silver coating, not electroplating because the silver is too thic...
Dear Likeitold4me, Could you please post a some pictures of yours. Also the size would be nice too. And include the makers mark on the back if you can get a good shot. Thanks, Kirk
Thanks Racer, a real puzzle for me... Thanks AGH, Sklo, Blunder and Roycroft, for the love...
I passed on one of these, guess that was a mistake, ooops. I do also love your new photo too. Regards, Kirk
Thanks Sean, any ideas?
Just Beautiful, it may be common, but delicious to my eyes...
Dear Racer, Please don't be hard on yourself. This is a very difficult area of ceramics to become knowledgeable in, it takes a commitment, as it is so vast with so many dynasties and periods to under...
Dear HO2, As I mentioned on the other piece, this too is probably 20th C. It has a stamped mark, which cannot be read. The enamels are rather crude, but colors used denote "made for export". Robin56 ...
Dear HO2 & Racer, These are "made for export", probably correct 20C. They are not Tongzhi, that refers to a period during the Qing dynasty. The design is similar to those found on Tongzhi period piec...
Just exquisite, love the texture and color. Incredible find, but no clue on this one.
Now there is a subject, I have been waiting to read about, lol
Now I know why I can't seem to find any grand items like you always find, because someone took them all to Sidney, beautiful pieces, Kirk
Truly a remarkable piece to own! Congrats, Kirk
Yes I am back, hope I can stay connected, miss all of you. Thanks Vetraio, I will pursue German. Thanks Sean, always good to hear from you. Thanks Surfdub66 & Aghcollect I have even seen a Rinds...
Hello Senchi, I came across your piece, very lovely. It is Pottery by Capo Di Monte Made In Italy. Mystery solved. Regards, Kirk
Oz, those are so remarkable, I am at a loss for words. Thanks for sharing all at once to compare and appreciate. Regards, Kirk
I have to ask, at 33", how much does it weigh. My guess is over 25lbs.
Dear Gracay2004, I watched looked and listened. From the photos it is stunning, so who cares who made it, unless your planing on selling it, then you need to know. But at 33" tall, it's a great find ...
What a lovely surprise, and nice gift.
Dear Ho2, Those are so wonderful. I think they are Repousse, meaning the ornate design that was created by pushing it out from the inside. HARRIS & SHAFER - Washington, D.C. A partnership of Edwin...
Dear ho2cultcha, I agree with Jedman1. I mentioned months ago, that you should not rush to judgement. Often primitive pieces are mistaken for junk. I hope you have not painted it, but if so, enjoy......
Wonderful find, beautiful color.
Wow, that says it all. :-)
Beautiful, colors remind me of Picasso and De' Simone.
