Hello,

My screen name is Rarewares.

I'd like to see the item and the marks, writing or labels on the bottom or back.

If you are on a computer, use the blue document with up arrow symbol by the SEND

to browse your device for a photo.

Write any word in the message box

then choose only ONE picture then send and do the next. It will not let you batch upload them all at once.

On mobile phone, upload them in this chat.

I will answer on the website once I research and write the answer, so thank you for your patience.

How do I load up the pictures
Expert:  Rarewares replied 2 months ago.

Everyone's screen is different depending on device, browser, app or website, so I am not sure what you see on your screen.

You should be able to add a picture to this chat.

Do you have a email address that I can send pictures of the tea pot
Expert:  Rarewares replied 2 months ago.

If it would be easier for you, you can email the files to***@******.*** with
"for rarewares in antiques" in the subject line of the email and they
will forward them to me within 48 hours. It is slower, but I don't want you to be frustrated with loading them here.

The site uses a third party procedure for email, so they get them first and pick out the pictures to re-email to me.
This keeps us both safe as far as privacy goes but it does take a few hours for them to do. Thanks for your patience.

Ok I will email you them
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I just wanted you to know that I have sent you the pictures to that address you sent me
Expert:  Rarewares replied 2 months ago.

Wonderful. They get the email, not me, so it takes them time to re-email just the pictures to me.

My name is ***** ***** I messaged you the other day regarding my tea pot that I wanted to be valued and do you think that I should get it insured.
The teapot is eterni-tea millennium piece and the items are in perfect condition with no chips or marks and it's been in the boxes since they were bought and I only got them out to take some pictures of it and it's been done by Paul cardew

Rarewares Do you have the pictures now as I can see them on the screen so could you please tell me what the item is worth and do you think I should get it insured thanks again ***** *****
Expert:  Rarewares replied 2 months ago.

I am unable to find a match for this item. I will opt-out and allow another expert to answer.
They will see our conversation and your photos. I am not able to respond once I opt-out. Good luck!
