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

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
Antique Expert: Nora, Expert in Fine and Decorative Arts: Renaissance through Contemporary replied 3 years ago
Hi Christi,
