Seller: Top-Rated Seller carld1846 (6,490) 100%, Location: Surfers Paradise, QLD, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 133075496891 Exquisite antique Chinese blue and white small vase. Circa Qianlong Period 1780s. The small blue & white vase is beautifully hand painted with a Chinese priest possibly Zhong Kui ( 锺馗), the legendary ghost catcher. He is wearing a long robe with Chinese tri-grams. Landscape in the background. The base is adhered to the vase. The wooden base is a huanghuali wood. Very rare. There is a mark stencilled on the vase near the top of the priest head. It looks like a T but it is a Chinese character Ding ( 丁 ). I am not sure what it meant. Bought this in Saigon almost immediately after the war in 1976. Chinese living in Saigon were fleeing from the advancing North Vietnam communists. The needed gold and American dollars so they used their antiques such as porcelain to exchange. It was very sad but they needed help and I was there. I gave the Chinese merchant all my dollars in exchange for Chinese porcelains and pipes. Some were confiscated when I exited Saigon. I was lucky enough to save a few and this was one of them. I doubt you will be able to find another one of this even in China today. Excellent condition. Height: 13 cm The battery is there for size comparison only. It has nothing to do with the item. 'Most of my collection is one of a kind. I bought the items because I liked it for myself. They were never intended to be resold. Each item has a story and when possible I hand carried in my luggage from all over the world to bring back to Australia. Some of the items have travelled a long way away and some of the items has been with me for 65 years. I am now retired and need to downsize. I will not be able to buy a similar item again and definitely not able to sell it at the same price. If you buy an item from me it most likely is the only one I have. Not only you are buying an item you are also buying 50 years of experience. Thanks for bidding.' I only accept Paypal. I have a 5 business days shipping policy however if I can send earlier I will.
