Customer Question
My husband inherited...

My husband inherited 2 chinese vases,Dragons in gold and red on the outside. with a blue colour inside. They were given to Sir Horace Jones (Who designed the Tower Bridge) whose daughter gave them to Blanch Patch (George Bernard Shaw) secretary who gave them to my husband. I feel they maybe worth something.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

I have two chinese vases given to Sir Horace Jones who designed the Tower Bridge, His daughter horato Jones gave them to Blanch Patch who was George Bernard Secretary she was my husbands Aunt. and Horatos;, cousin. They are gold and red dragons with a blue inside . they have markings under the base. I feel they may have some value. joan Patch.
