Good morning from New Hampshire! I am seeking an appraiser or specialist in Asian, (primarily Chinese), 18th and 19th century jewelry for a client referral. Please advise if you can help, or if you can refer me to someone in the New England area? Thanks, in advance, for your reply!

Hi, can you or your Father/Brother look at my post and tell me what the stone is? Soapstone or brown Jade?
Age or Dynasty? And value? I have it posted at I Antique online in your group. Here is a link to it. Many thanks for your superb help. Tom

Delete Comment love the color for sure!! beautiful piece you have here.
Thanks for dropping in. Yep it is pretty. The day I bought it I ran into a glass expert on his way to a glass show and he said in thirty years he had never seen one this color and his wife was a collector of this particular glass only in the green. There was a card with it. This piece was given to someone as a wedding gift in 1903.
No one else seems to know anything either. I had posted it in the glass section. Never seem to get around to doing the research on many of my own things.
Hi Fabrice the tea pot below is a Cantonese enamel. The shape and handle do show it to be the late Ming or early Qing dynasty. The value would be very little in the shape it is now. Value today $ 100.00-125.00 if it was to be restored would bring $1200.00-1800.00 We do not restore our items so I couldn't tell you who would be good in this type of restore. This type of tea pot is very beautiful in good shape. Sorry for the delay we have been traveling it is show season here in the West coast.

Hello from Belgium Antique Dragon, Would you help me to identified this chinese item in painted enamel copper. It is 7.08 inches hight. It is not in very good condition but the colours and personnages are very nice. There is some Chinese personnages and mythologic personnages and also european personnages with cloths of the XVIIth or XVIIIth century. Can I send you pictures by mail?
Best regards from Belgium.
I love asian fans, but I was looking at your scrolls. If you have interesting information on either I'd love to share. If you want to keep things private you can use the mail/envelope. Let me know if you are selling them. I get lost in asian research myself. An extreemly difficult task for one to take on alone. I recently learned in Chinese culture, I was born in the year of the chicken. Imagine that. Museums can be a great wealth of information. Thanks
Hi Tanya, I just picked up a little more information on my search. Found this picture on the Nanjing China museum.http://www.yasue.cc/x9.jpg When I put it up next to mine it has all the same colors and similar details in the trees. Also the man of integrity is in a near color match garment.... perhaps my guy is the man of integrity.I noticed the asian silks that you have "art". What can you tell me about them? Oralei
Hi Tanya and the rest of you fine friends
