Dear Tom,

     That's why I was so impressed with Kevin's photography!
There is a reason it is called 'Anhua'!  Grin

Dear Joey,

The bottle that I posted in Reply13, White Anhua-incised snuff bottle of cylindrical from, incised and molded on the biscuit body, with a five-clawed dragon amid clouds, the eyes picked out in cobalt blue, covered in a clear glaze, unglazed foot cut with thirteen concentric rings. 9.2cm high. Early to mid 19th C.

I have attached a clearer picture. If you like it, you can bring #13 along end of the year and I will ask my colleague to photo it. You know him too, he told me that you were sitting beside him on the bus during the HK convention  Wink.

Cheers,
YT

Need to clarify that these photos are taken under standard LED lightings using a Nikon and no photoshop was done.  Cheesy

Dear YT,
 
    Thank you.
I wasn't going to 'shlepp' a porcelain SB all around the world, but it will be worth it.
Best,
Joey

Dear Ted,
 
     You are correct.
     BUT, I'm returning the Apple Green Jadeite and the Clear on Realgar Overlay Glass with the flanking archaistic dragons to Israel.

      Then I'm bringing Kim & Jim the 2 (or is it 3, Giovanni) Bakelite snuff bottles I have for them as an anniversary present to LA. And I expect to buy bottles in LA at the convention, and have already commissioned 3 Zhuanshu  (Archaic script) calligraphy in quartz bottles, and bought a Kaishu (Standard script) calligraphy in quartz, from Jill (Guo Jie) and Li Hui.

     And hopefully, will find bottles in Taipei, HK, Thailand, and Singapore, or possibly other treasures. Last time in Singapore, I found a wonderful silver and gold toddler's genital shield from Aceh's Moslem culture. They were and are murdering fanatic evil bast**ds, but they did do superb metalwork in the 19th C. At least for the aristocracy.  Roll Eyes   Whoops. Me bad. Grin

     So, I'm not thrilled about shlepping any more than I have to.
I have a superb cashmere and lambswool coat, great in Toronto or London or Paris (etc.), in winter. I won't need it till the last few days of my trip, when I'm in London, around the 10th of Dec.
Instead, I am taking 2 UNIQLO superlightweight anoraks, which weigh under 50 grams each, one XL which I can wear over my blazer; and another one in M, which I can wear over a sweater. So I carry 100 grams weight of outerwear, instead of a coat which weighs a few kg (and which doesn't roll up into a bag about 5cmX5cmX10cm!). And the UNIQLO is almost as warm as the cashmere (though MUCH less stylish).

  I will talk to Robert Hall the photographer, and show him the info on the Forum, and see if he can't reproduce the same results in London. Dublin-London-Dublin doesn't bother me.  Wink

Best,
Joey
