Customer Question

Hello,
I purchased a piece of pottery that for some reason I fell in love with, although it's normally not my style. I tried to do a bit of research on it, to find out possible origin, but came up with nothing. I know it has no real value, but would like to know if you have any informaton on this piece? I have two pictures to send, couldn't attach to this.
Thank you,
Christi

Hi Christi~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
At your convenience, please send photos. A full image with the design and a clear, in-focus close-up of the mark would be ideal.
When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.
When evaluating an item, photos are essential to helping me come to a correct assessment.
If there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos:

I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.
Sincerely,
Nora

Sorry, still having difficulties sending on my i-pad. Anyway I can just send to you in e-mail?
Expert:  Nora replied 1 year ago.
Hi Christi,
You can try emailing your images to***@******.*** and write “For Nora/Antiques” in the subject line of the email.
Photos sent by email do not arrive to me directly nor instantly, they get forwarded to me by admin.

Hi Nora,
I just want to confirm if the photo's were received? I realize you indicated they may take a while to get to you, however, I wanted to make sure they were sent to the correct e-mail address.
Thank you so much for your assistance.

I finally have access to my PC which enabled me to see the icons to send photo's. The second photo of signature on bottom is unclear, sorry. I don't have the item yet, I am using photo's from the auction.

Thank you.

Hi Nora,
I received an e-mail from your help desk indicating they forwarded the pictures I sent a couple of days ago on to you, today. The picture of the signature is much better.
I was wondering if you recieved it, and if you've had a chance to find out anything?
Thank you,
Christi
