Hi! My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help with your vase.Could you very kindly attach some photos of it and one of the entire bottom (whether it is marked or not) and of the amateur modeling you mentioned around the neck. If you already have the photos in your computer then you can attach them simply by clicking on the paperclip icon that's located above the box where you are typing to me.Many thanks and wait to hear.Robert PS. Meanwhile, please don't rate me until you get a full appraisal and a value from me. I mention this because you may get random prompts asking you to rate me before I've submitted an answer, ignore them, they are automatically generated by the site (it doesn't seem to be able to distinguish an answer from preparatory back and forth and information gathering) and don't come from me. Thanks, Robert

I do not personaly have photographs trying to send on my daughter's but system asking for password ***** I do not recollect having one. Can you help.

Expert:  Robert S. replied 1 year ago.
Thanks for the update on the photos.If it's any easier, you or your daughter can email them to me. The only email that works is***@******.*** the email for my attention, Robert S. in the Antiques category otherwise they won't know who to send it to. I work "on" rather than "for" the site as an independent agent so all emails have to go through a third party to protect everyone's privacy. It may take up to 24 hours, but I'll let you know as soon as I see it this end.I'm not sure what the problem is about your being asked for a password. As I don't work for the site, I'm as much in the dark about these things as you are. If you contact Customer Support, I'm sure they will be able to help.Looking forward to seeing what you have!Best wishes,Robert

Did you receive the photographs sent last week

Expert:  Robert S. replied 1 year ago.
Hi,No photos have been passed on to me. Could you very kindly send them again.The only email that gets to me is***@******.*** the photos for my attention, Robert S, in the Antiques category.I'll be sure to let you know as soon as they have been passed on to me this end. Alternatively, you can get them to me instantly by having your daughter log into this JustAnswer page and click on the paperclip icon (located above the text box where you are typing to me).Sorry this is such a process but your vase sounds interesting and valuable and it's essential for me to see it (and the marks, or lack of them) for me to be able to give you a worthwhile appraisal.Many thanks,Robert

We have used all correct details as above three times but you are evidently not receiving them. What else can we do.

Regards

Expert:  Robert S. replied 1 year ago.

Hi Roy,

I'm sorry you are not having any success with getting the photos to me, very frustrating for both of us. It may be that your picture file size is too large and they are being rejected by the server for that reason.

 

The best thing to do now is to upload your pictures to a free public picture hosting site and then give me the link to them so I can use it to go to where you uploaded them.

This is the one I find easiest to use -just three clicks and a copy and paste and you are done.

Go to http://www.imgur.com/

(no need to 'log in' or 'register' it makes it far too complicated)

Click on Computer

Select the pictures you want to send me from the box that pops up.

Hit open.

Click on Start Upload

And then copy the link they give you. It will look similar to this http://www.imgur.com/xxxxxxx and it's located right under where it says Share Link and paste it here where you are typing to me.

 

(If you have uploaded multiple photos on one Imgur.com link, copy the URL in the browser bar at the top of your screen, otherwise I get just one photo)

 

If that takes too long to upload here's Plan B:

It's another nearly as easy-to-use free public picture hosting site that deals with the problem of too-big pictures by reducing your file size automatically.

 

Go to http://www.tinypic.com/
Click on Browse

(it will then automatically pull up your picture files).

Select the image you want to send me and click open

Return to the tiny pic page and click Upload Now

and it brings you to a bunch of links.

Click on the one under URL for E-Mail & IM

Click on the link to make it turn black,

right click, and hit copy

Then paste to where you are typing to me.


Hope this helps!

Robert
