Antique Chinese and Japanese Porcelain e-mail consultation

Personal e-mail consultation - $20 per item

If you need a quick answer on any Antique Chinese or Japanese porcelain you have, welcome to e-mail me directly. To help support this site, kindly donate $20 per item. Just hit the 'PayPal' button (to the left) and I will answer as soon as I can.

A few limitations apply; This service is for antique Chinese or Japanese porcelain. If your porcelain are modern or maybe not even Asian, I might not be able to tell what you have. I also don't know everything; I can't translate Chinese or Japanese cursive texts. Translations of Marks will be given if they are known and I have them in my archive. Some modern seals and cursive script marks can be very difficult to translate. My focus it to - if possible - say "yes" or "no" on authenticity and give a basic identification so you can continue your research in the right direction. If I am uncertain, I will say so and try to send you in the right direction. What I do is not an appraisal and I'd rather not suggest any values on anything I have not handled in person except in very general terms.

After paying, copy and paste the PayPal Transaction ID in the field below before posting your question. If you have already paid for your question and just coming back, you can use the word "resubmit" instead.

Thank you in advance for your interest and support
