Thank you,

Brian

Yes indeed Brian.. !

The theme is story of Cao Fighting with Ma Chao from Three Kingdoms period.

Is it a larger bottle?

Congratulations if it is yours !

Thanks George. Is this also a YST bottle? This is a larger size, 5 1/2 inches tall.

Thank you,

Brian

Yes indeed, it sure is Brian...

Both are signed Shoutian and can be dated to about 1920..

5 1/2 is sure a large one !

Hi George

Sorry, I bet to differ.

Both are signed as Liu Qiao on the bottle.

Regards.

Thank you Richard. If Qiao, then probably mid-20th Century then right?

Thanks Pat. From what I've read, Qiao is not as desirable as Shoutian. Is that correct?

In general that's true , however several others in his students signed YST name and Lu Qiao is sometimes better than them. There is a bottle on eBay owned by one our members that is likely to fetch $250 at end of auction.
