Dear Joey,

As you always mentioned, you need to handle / fonder the
bottles to be more sure of their datings.
So wait till we meet again 😄😄

Dear Inn Bok,

     I have been thinking that I should explain the 80 year spread of dating.

     The two bottles both look very nice and could be ca.1880-1910, ie. Qing Dynasty.
But they could also be ca. 1910-1949, and thus Republic of China.
Finally, they could also have been made between 1950 and 1960.

    I just could not decide, so I gave the wide dating goalposts I did. I'd love to be able to
narrow it, in one direction or another.
Best,
Joey

Dear Tom,

     Thank you. I thought the same thing. The dealer was very pleasant and personable when I visited his gallery, and I don't think he was malicious; just not smart enough to pack it correctly. Since it had not been opened by Israeli Customs, I can't even blame them. Roll Eyes Grin

Best,
Joey

Dear Inn Bok,

    Both bottles are very pleasing. Re.Dating: I would say ca. 1880-1960.
Best,
Joey

Dear all,

Sorry for an error in my earlier posting, The one showing the base is the wrong one. It belongs to another bottle whose pictures I am about to post.

Dear all,

This is one of my recent additions to my collection, 70mm high and both faces have the same design of ' shou ' motif.
The collector is a Chinese from either the Mainland or Taiwan. I believe it was a Qing  but not sure of the period.

For sharing and your comments, please.

 The upper part I am thinking of sending back, and requesting that the dealer have another stand made to fit it, and send back both rock and stand to me.


Dear Joey,

Sorry to hear about the breakage. I think your proposal is a very good one. You get two meditation rocks, and the dealer doesn't lose face.
Of course, if the dealer refuses, then immediately do as Giovanni suggests.

All best,
Tom

Dear Adrian,

Where did you order the lovely plates from ? I would like to give it a try if these porcelain items are still available.
