Atpresent since 3 days ago, i have 2 members watching this item, so please do make me an offer if you don’t want to lose it. This is the 4th and last item of my late mum’s ancient oriental porcelian that i have listed today : this is a remarkable late 1700’s square shaped vase, hand painted and signed on the base, with a different scene on each side as shown clearly in the photos : i was not sure if it was crazing at first, but the auctioneer who valued it for me assured me it is called crackle glaze. In fact many of my items i have inherited from my late mum, and they have been in our family since the 1800s or earlier. Apart from these, it is a lifetime collection for me. There is also natural provenenance in many of my items. I grew up an only child from an old fashioned titled country home masonic and business family in somerset. My father was a sir and a master mason, and indeed was in the chair at his lodge for one year. My mum was a titled lady as his wife, and i as his daughter. Before i met my late husband by pure fate 15 years ago, i was just an ordinary wee village lassie, albeit it with my natural title of lady from mum and dad, and got my professional title of dr much later in life, due to writing and publishing 6 books, the first of which prince Charles agreed to write the foreword for me back in my 20s. My late husband who i met at age 40, was a titled royal laird (lord) in Scotland, even tho i did not know this for a while after meeting him, and he was worth tens of millions in land, properties and other assets and business investments. I loved him dearly and still do, even tho he passed 7 years ago, leaving me a young widow of 52, albeit technically still a titled lady, but practically penniless. Also i ended up with my 3 outbuildings crammed full of all her smaller antiques and old ming and kangxi and imari chinese porcelain, antique glassware and silverware etc. Also i even have mountains of her vintage toiletries, beauty care items, and edp perfumes too. Since losing my beloved husband, i put my faith in my guardian angels out there, and my earth angels too, for all i need.

I cannot truthfully say this is a non smoking home as i do smoke the odd cigarella in an evening, but only in my sitting room and not in the rest of the house or outbuildings. I have only ever had one complaint about the aroma of smoke on an item, but nobody else seems to notice it. However, feel free to mention it to me if it bothers you. I also do have a cat in my home sometimes, but he goes in and out thru his cat door. I want happy buyers, and i feel sure you will be delighted with my items, but if there is any problem or complaint, please do feel free to contact me rather than leave me bad feedback, and i will do my best to make things right.
