This is an old porcelain. Typical of one that would be owned by a common person. It has the colors and style of a late Ching piece. Blue and yellow glaze and heavy somewhat crude painting. It is good in that it is quite old and shows no apparent damage. It is about 3" tall, no bottom marks. It has a metal spoon, probably not original as bone or wood spoons were found in this age bottle. As with all antique Chinese porcelain bottles and pieces, the prices continue to rise and the market is s ...click for details

I have taken an antique Elephant Ivory pendant, that has been carved with great skill and detail and strung it with a pressed glass key design, silver cloisonne and antique blue glass spacer beads. The overall length with pendant is 14 1/2". The ivory pendant is 3" long, 2" wide and 1/2" deep. I will sell this piece without the component necklace for a reduction of $130.00. This is an outstanding piece and the Elephant ivory is legal due to the age.
