Hi Tara,

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help with your Chinese figure.

Could you very kindly attach photos, including any identifying marks, let me know how tall the figure is and I'll tell you all about it, give you a value estimate range for selling on the secondary market (antique auction houses or on line on sites such as eBay) and explain exactly how you go about selling.

PS Here's a really easy way to attach additional photos.
Just three clicks and a copy and paste and you are done:

Go to

(no need to 'log in' or 'register' it makes it too complicated)
Click on "Upload Images"
Click on "Browse Your Computer"
Select the pictures you want to send me from the box that pops up.
Hit "open".
Click on "Start Upload" (and wait few seconds pictures to load)
And then copy the link they give you. It will look similar to this and it's located right under where it says Image Link
and paste it here where you are typing to me.

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