Customer Question
I have a Chinese...

I have a Chinese Ginger jar I am interested in selling but am unsure of its value

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

It stands 15'" high with gold inlay. The base color is tan with a dragon on the lid

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

It appears to have a signature or mark on the inside of the lid Of course its in Chinese so I have no idea what it signifies
