Hello Homer,

My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help.

Please upload a clear picture of one cup. Please also give me a list of the pieces in your tea set.

Please see our help page for help uploading images.


Go to

1. Click "Computer".

2. Double click the image you want to upload.

3. Click "Start Upload".

4. When the image appears on your screen, just copy the link from that page and paste it on this page.

If that doesn't work for you:

You can email the pictures to *****@******.***, and ask them to forward the pictures to me. You must tell them the pictures are for the Antiques category, and give them your user name and mine, which is Judith-on-Antiques. It is important for you to send the email from the address with which you registered at Just Answer. If you are sending them from a phone, you must put the original email address in the text.

HI Karen,

The link you sent is not a working URL. Please try again.

I see you have requested a phone call. I don't usually do phone calls, since they entail an extra charge to the customer and I can answer your question right here without that additional charge. Also, I can't do the research and talk to you at the same time. Do you still want a phone call?
