For your consideration we have this wonderful antique Chinese Ming Dynasty celadon glazed funerary urn with applied figurines (one is of a person, the other is a phoenix). It is an impressive 18 1/4 inches tall and almost 7 1/2 inches in diameter. The thick celadon glaze is worn in areas, and there are some fleabite nicks here and there as well as some pieces missing from one of the applied figures, but it is in incredible condition considering its size. There is a lot of age-crazing in the glaze. We are selling a lot of Asian antiques this coming week. Some of them we purchased at a single-owner auction from Leslie Hindman's in Chicago where they sold a lot of ex-museum pieces, some of which we'll be offering here. Please take a moment to view the many other Asian, European, and American antiques and pieces of high-end art we're offering this week from our personal collection. -IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ THE TERMS BELOW- Welcome to our auction. We have decided that after years of collecting, it's time to move the larger portion of the things we've acquired along to new owners. Keeping and maintaining all of these things is no longer a priority for us, and we hope you'll enjoy the large number of quality antique items that we'll be selling over the next while, and that they find good and loving homes. We purchased many of these things on our trips in Europe and Asia, so they are what I'd suppose you'd call fresh to the American market. Some of the things we did purchase here in the US from reputable auction houses like James D. Julia's, Hindman's, Rago's, Christie's, and others that we frequented. Of course our first instinct was to sell through an auction house, but by the time they added their commission up to the photo/insurance/etc. fees, and then charge a very hefty buyers premium, we would be handing them about 50% of the overall sale proceeds, and that's just not something we could stomach. So we're using Ebay since the charge between this site and PayPal adds up to only about 15% out of the sellers end. Please take the time to view our other items this week (we expect to be selling about 200 items per listing run). There is a fine collection of Asian antiques that will be listed on Friday, French art glass like Daum, Galle, Muller Freres, etc.; French pottery like Dalpayrat, Delaherche, Emile Decoeur, will be listed on Saturday along with Italian art glass pieces from Fulvio Bianconi, Carlo Scarpa, Dino Martens, Martinuzzi, Gio Ponti, and other Venini and Barovier artists. Also listed on Saturday are some rare clocks, paintings, bronzes, and rare Handel and Pairpoint lamps, as well as some exceptional American art glass and pottery by William Morris and Beatrice Wood. And there are some very high end jewelry pieces my partner is selling, including an amazing platinum ring that houses a fancy yellow diamond of almost 4 CTW and two perfect side diamonds adding another 2 CT's to the final presentation, complete with a wholesale appraisal of over $50,000.00. On Sunday we'll be listing some dozens of 18th and 19th century nautical and scientific instruments, including chronometers and early sextants. *We are running this auction for 10 days so that everyone will have more than enough time to ensure themselves that the item is what they want. We expect that any questions will be asked prior to auction end, because there will be no returns for buyer's regret. If we have misstated something obvious, we'll of course take back the item and issue a refund, but as Ebay makes the seller pay for shipping and insurance both ways, it becomes prohibitively expensive for a seller, so again, please make sure that you intend to follow through with the sale. The items have already been packaged with the utmost care, always erring on the side of safety, and are mostly double boxed. Some of the highly fragile items will be sent by registered mail, which takes a little longer, but requires every person handling the box to sign for its integrity. I've never had anything arrive broken when shipped via that method. If there is an overcharge amounting to more than a dollar or two on shipping, we will refund you the money. Attention: We can ship this item to almost anywhere in the world, but the shipping costs will depend on location and type of service. The shipping quoted is for domestic service only. If you live outside of the USA and win an auction, please send us your address particulars, an international phone number, and wait for us to quote shipping. We cannot ship to Russia, and there are shipping restrictions for China. All duties and import taxes are the responsibility of the buyer, and we must state the value of the item as it is the law. We will combine shipping when possible. Large and very fragile items will be shipped separately. Payment & Handling Time: Payment must be received within 3 days of auction end, and the item will be shipped within 48 hours after payment clears except for when payment falls on a weekend. Non-payment cases will be opened for non-payers. _gsrx_vers_795 (GS 7.0.7 (795))
