Hi! My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help with your collection. Asian decorative arts is my specialty.
If you wish I can appraise it right here for you if you can attach photos.
I appraise up to four items at a time per question depending on the type of item.
If you would prefer that I refer you to a local appraiser I can certainly do that instead.
Many thanks and wait to hear.
