I have a antique porcelain lamp-vase Epoque K'ang-HSI

Customer Question
I have a antique...

I have a antique porcelain lamp-vase Epoque K'ang-HSI 1662-1723 can you give me an idea of price to sell it. Thank you

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I have a antique porcelain vase K'ANG - HSI 1662-1723 and I want to sell it. Can you quote me the value. Thank you

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

That is all I have

Bottom: Epoque K'ANG - H 1662-1723
Is a light color white and with a flowers design very light blue
Antique Expert: Glenda B., Antiques Appraiser replied 10 months ago

Hi,
This is your answer, please read entirely.
.
The Epoque K'ANG - H 1662-1723 Vase 42 cm high has an estimated value on the current market for an average of $800.00-875.00 if sold at an auction(a local auction ) it would sell for a little less,at around $500.00-525.00, if this were sold in a High End Antique Shop in a larger city it would sell for $800.00 and up depending on the condition. If I were selling it I would list it for $ 800.00
.
Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is also Rubylane, which is a more upscale site where people sell more expensive items. There is also Tias and GoAntiques, which is on the same scale of Rubylane. There is Amazon Market Place, and of course Ebay. You can also sell on Charish, where you consign items. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! All sites can be sold from with pick up only option.
.
If you sell to a dealer, antique shop or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.
.
Please ask any question you might have about your answer before rating this.
.
It was a pleasure working for you. If you have more items you need values for. Just send to "Glenda Only" I would be happy to help.

I saw your answer and appreciate very much the contents. The reason for my offer of pictures and writing at the bottom of the vase is for you to review your answer. Your quote is base in uncompleted information and your request for pictures is very logical. Can you see my point? I hope so.
Thank you
