Normal 0 14 false false false IT _______Clay & Brush______ ___Please read full description, conditions report, size, terms of sale and shipping notes at the end__ ____________________________________________DESCRIPTION___________________________________________ I am selling this absolutely fine flower pot. By the style of the motif around the foot, and by the turquoise inner glaze, I believe that it must be dated to the second half of the 19th Century, Tongzhi 同治 or Guangxu 光緒 I am regrettably selling this pot, because I am sure that I will no more find a so fine one. The decoration is outstanding, in my opinion it is of Imperial quality. Note, in one of the pictures, the detail of one of the small birds, which body has a length of only one inch!! Look at the details of the phoenixes and the butterfly, the delicacy of the flowers. Fine potting, lobed rim. It is absolutely superb, hence the limited reserve price. Guaranteed as described. ____________________________________________CONDITIONS___________________________________________ NOTE: Unfortunately, since October 2017, ebay no longer allows to insert texts or artworks into images. This means that it will no longer be possible to highlight some not apparent defects, such as hairlines, directly in the images as I did in the past. All I can do now is to do my best to describe them, quoting the related images, in the following Conditions Report. CONDITIONS REPORT: The pot is in really great conditions. No cracks nor airlines, no chips. In the picture of the base, you can see a fine line. That is in the glaze only, because it is not visible inside the pot. There are some flaking of the inner turquoise glaze. SIZE: 18 cm high. Place your best bid now! Do not wait for last seconds or snipe biddings, or you risk to lose the item. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TEN DOLLARS STARTING PRICE WITH A VERY LOW RESERVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ----------------Guaranteed genuine as described. See my other listings! Please read the Terms of Sale---------------- Any inquire please feel free to contact me through eBay. ________________________________________________About me_______________________________________________ I have been collecting antique Chinese porcelain for many years. I have now decided to deaccession a great part of my collection. Every item that I am selling is genuine, collected with interest and great care. It is described accordingly to my best knowledge. Each collector has items from which it is difficult to part. For those items and the more valuable ones I may set a reserve price, lower than what you may expect. I guarantee what declared in the description. You can return the item if it is not as described. ________________________________________________Shipping________________________________________________ The parcel will be sent from Italy, with full traceability, by Italian Post or UPS within Europe and by EMS Worldwide. I guarantee a safe packing, do not be afraid about a safe delivery. I will refund all costs if you will receive a damaged item because of a not proper packing; but it is up to the recipient to inspect the parcel upon delivery and report it to the consignor if evidently damaged by a too bad treatment. To be clear, I will not be responsible if the parcel ended under the wheels of the truck. SHIPPING WORLDWIDE AT FOLLOWING COSTS Sometime a mismatching may occur within your location and eBay’ shipping costs automatic system. In case of doubt, wait for my invoice that usually I send out just after the end of the auction, or ask before to pay. The costs, for more of the items, are as follows: Italy 10 Euro / 12 US$ Europe 25 Euro / 30 US$ via Italian Post, or 30 Euro / 35 US$ via UPS, depending on the weight. America and Asia 50 US$. Oceania 80 US$. Note that in case of very heavy parcels the cost may increase. For small, light items, (like the snuff bottles), I can send the parcels as International Registered mail, which costs less, but in that case the traceability isn’t available everywhere. Although I have already sent items that way Worldwide without problem, I do not recommend it. So, if you prefer that method of shipping I am not responsible. In such case, the shipping cost will be 18 US$ for Europe, 25 US$ Worldwide except Oceania, and 32US$ for Oceania. PLEASE BE SO KIND TO READ HERE BELOW Buyers, please provide a telephone number. Chinese buyers please provide your full name and address BOTH IN WESTERN AND IN CHINESE CHARACTERS!! Plus a telephone number. I can't ship to China without having the address in both ways. _____________________________________________Terms of sale____________________________________________ I reserve the right to cancel an auction if I will note something suspicious or fraud. I D’ONT cancel auctions to accomplish direct offers. Payment must be made within two days unless otherwise agreed in advance; if for some reason you will not be able to do it, please contact me to avoid the termination of the sale contract. I will ship within 2-3 days: safe packing has priority! Return accepted and full refund will follow if I have made a wrong description and the item return in the original conditions. I do my best in taking accurate pictures as for color rendition and shape. Though, the color may vary according to your monitor. All texts and images are copyright of Clay & Brush. All duty, taxes and documentation requested by the purchaser’s Country laws are in charge of the purchaser. Items paid through Paypal will only be sent to the verified Paypal’s address. The winner of the auction must provide a full, correct address including a telephone number, which is requested by the Post service. I am not responsible for items not delivered due to a not complete or unclear address. Bidders with zero feedbacks please contact me in advance. SOME CLARIFICATION: I am limited by ebay to 12 photos per listing, so it is often impossible to photograph each scratch or imperfection which might be on the item for sale. Keep in mind that they are antique. I always photograph the biggest and most serious flaws / cracks / imperfections etc. and clearly describe them in the Conditions Report. You can ask for additional photographs, I will email them to you. If you buy my item as it is advertised you agree that you understand that the described imperfections are the most serious ones but there might be more minor ones that were not visible on the pictures. Of course, a minor flaw cannot be reason for any full or partial refund. This is not to fool my customers, this is to protect me from absurd claims, as happened, for refund based on really insignificant small scratches while I reported much more serious cracks and chips. By bidding / buying you agree to these conditions. A relevant issue for Chinese ceramics is the correct dating. When I mention the age of my item it is my personal opinion, based on my knowledge. We know that it is full of modern reproductions out there. Even the major auction houses are sometimes fooled. So, the prospective buyers are responsible for final decision of determining the age of the items. What I mean is that I guarantee that the item is well described in all honesty and I will be responsible if proven that I have been wrong, but there will be no returns based on some subjective assumption of the buyer, not supported by solid arguments. To be clear, no return because “a friend told me that it is a fake” or “an antiquarian told me that it doesn’t look old”. By bidding / buying you also agree to these conditions. ______________________________________And now the sore side_____________________________________ I really hate bidders who does not pay. They are not only hurting me as a seller, they are causing a serious disappointment to the honest bidders that have been outbid by someone who should not even be there. And they are causing a damage to the whole community of ebay. Besides, I am hyper-irritated by those who after that, are not answering to the messages. I am suggesting to those people to think twice before to do that, because I will not only report them as nonpaying bidders to ebay; I will also report their name, address and telephone number on the item relisted because of a nonpaying bidder, and will do the same in ebay’s Forums and Community. In that way, their name will appear in Google search as a nonpaying person. Beware, no exceptions. _______________________________________________Feedback________________________________________________ Feedback will be released after receiving your one, because I want to be sure that you have received your item and you are happy with it. I thank you for releasing your feedback. If, for some reason, you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact me before to release your feedback. Thanks! ________________See my other listings for more fine Chinese antiques___________
