Copyright of Pictures
Post only your own pictures.  Pictures of items belonging to third parties, incl. those of auction houses, museums, etc. may not be posted in this forum. When asking questions about items of auction houses, museums, Ebay, or other websites, you should post a link to the pictures on an external site. Or, you could also use a site like Photobucket, etc.

Note: Content of this site appears in search results. Please do not post pictures of which you are not the copyright owner in this forum.

Posting Etiquette
All comments shall be directed at the item of a post, and never against a person. This forum is about helping each other, not criticism. We want to keep discussions peaceful.

The Forum is not for discussing value. Please read general information under “Value of Antiques” (see menu on main site).

Manufacturer/Age/Date of Manufacture
With antique Chinese porcelain the manufacturer and date of manufacture is usually not known. It is therefore usually impossible to pinpoint the manufacturer or manufacturing date.  (See information under “Marks”).

This blog may not be used for offering/selling ceramics of any type to visitors or third parties. However, it is all right to ask for 'opinions' on where to sell or buy.
It is not all right, however, to post names or links to dealer websites, etc. We want to avoid that the commercial element affects the quality of posts.

Your email will not be made available to third parties. Please do not enter your email address in the body of your message.
