Use the +Add Files feature next to the SEND button to upload photos of the item, including maker's marks.
The feature works best when you add ONE picture, put a word in the text box, hit send, then do the next.

first symbol is JR in a box
next symbol is a crown
next symbol is a lion

I really need to see a photo of the marks and of the set.

The shapes that the marks are in are just as important as the marks themselves.

I proposed an offer for you to text photos to me. Accept this offer if this is

a way that you could get photos to me of the tea set and the marks.

I really do have to see the marks and the set with my own eyes in order to tell you what you have.

Here are a few different options for sending pictures. The availability of each feature depends on which browser
(Safari, Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer) you are using and whether you are on a desktop or a phone.

1) Use the +Add Files feature next to the red SEND button on in the area where you write back to me
to upload photos of the item, including maker's marks.

2) Use the paperclip icon above the texting area where you reply.
The photos will upload when you add at least one word in the text box.
You won't see the photo, but the paperclip will turn green.

3) You can email the pictures to***@******.*** with
"forCustomerquot; in the subject line of the email and they
will forward them to me (please include the link to your question page).This way takes 24-48 hours.
