Hi Grace,

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to appraise your Ben Owens pottery.

Can you very kindly do a group photo or two of the items so I can get an idea of which glaze/shape etc you have.

Also a shot of the signature would help too.

Many thanks,

PS. Once you have the photos in your computer (if you are using a smart phone camera, just email them to yourself) it's then a simple matter to attach them. Just click on the paperclip icon, located above the text box where you are typing to me. If there's no paperclip, click on the "Add files" tab.

If you get stuck go here for help.
