But   to my totally  untrained   eye  ( and taste)   you can  have  swopped the  Skinner's   website for  Bonhams  Bloch III and  I would  have been  hard  pushed to  say which was  which  ...except  for the  IPBs.
There  really are some  beauties  on the  Skinner's    site. I have no idea  of their  provenance, but  frankly  when  it  comes to  stone carved and  other   similar  bottles  I  would  only want to  pay for the   skill and  beauty, regardless of  whether the  bottle  was  created   2  years  or  200 years  ago.   

That is interesting...

I totally agree about buying for the beauty, regardless of the age of a bottle. Don't get me wrong, I do like the older bottles, but there are a whole lot of really beautiful newer bottles out there being offered at reasonable prices.. 

Looking forward to hearing all about your journey when you return from the Wang Xisan museum ceremony... !
