Make costly antique appraisals a thing of the past when you join me in the ground-breaking ultimate sleuthing experience . . .
The all NEW China Chat Member's Forum (aka 'The China Chat Sleuthing Club')
Listen to site visitor Sylvia (she sums it up for all of us):
I help you unfold your mysteries one by one - value, origin, background. In the process I help you know how to dig ever deeper, search even harder and think bigger until you become your own antiques expert.
Together we are a team, as always . . .
My top area of knowledge is fine china, but I'll look up and discuss other areas of collectibles and antiques as best I can - to start the ball rolling, and get others to pitch in.
You can upload multiple queries (unlimited) and, yes, I do research and discuss VALUE in the member's China Chat Forum (unlike the free forums).
AND! You can make offers to buy and sell too, if you so wish (no fees, no commissions). . .
Each member has access to other member's reports, so you can build up a knowledge of the constantly recurring topics (things like Famille Rose Qianlong marks and values - something only experts normally have the inside line on). You can comment on each other's stuff if you so desire.
(After completing a simple form, you will be linked straight back to this page in order to upload your queries).
Below is the submission form plus plenty of examples of member's queries and my replies; which is the 'sleuthing mix' you will find inside the member's china chat forum, so:
You need to be a member to have your form accepted. Click here to join up (if you're not already a member).
Submit one item per invitation form.
Take your time, as a member, there is no time limit and no restriction on the number of items you can upload.
I am most proficient at china and porcelain items, but I will research other items for you if I can.
DISCOVER | VALUE | SHARE
This interactive space is all about chatting, learning and finding out where our interests and experiences meet.
I tell you how I find out my information, so you can use similar techniques, if you don't already.
