Antique Chinese or Japanese porcelain

Are you curious about the Age, Origin or Authenticity of your Antique Chinese or Japanese porcelain? Maybe you want a second opinion before you buy or sell something; or want to know more about a family heirloom? Welcome to e-mail me directly for a quick answer.

To help support this page, kindly donate $20 per item. Just hit the PayPal button below, and I will respond as soon as I can. Maybe expect a slight delay if your piece requires some research.

A few limitations apply: This service is limited to antique Chinese or Japanese porcelain only. If your ceramics are modern, or perhaps not even Asian, I might not be able to identify what you have. I cannot translate Chinese or Japanese cursive texts or read seals. Some modern seals and cursive scripts can be very difficult to decipher. Please note, this is not an appraisal service. I can suggest a price level, but I'd rather not provide specific values on anything I haven't handled in person, except in very general terms. I can advise if it is worthwhile to consult with some of the larger auction houses for a professional appraisal.

After paying, please copy and paste the PayPal Transaction ID in the field below before posting your question. If you have already paid for your question and are returning, simply use the word "resubmit" instead.

Please shrink your images before sending. See below if you need assistance.

Thank you in advance for your interest and support.
