I have my grandmothers chinese? bowl and have no idea how to find out where it was from or what it is for
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. Does the bowl have unique or identifying markings?
Customer: i think so
JA: Do you know how old the bowl is? What condition is it in?
Customer: its in great condition but i have no idea of age
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: no sorry


My screen name is*****'s see how I can help you today.

UPLOAD pictures of the item (the front and all writing
on back or bottom). I do not need more than three pictures.
For the best photo, set on white paper on a table if it is a small enough item
(never hold item in your hands).

Use the tool (a tiny blue square, camera or a paper clip symbol depending on the device and browser)
to browse your device for a photo. Add one picture at a time.
Add a message before each photo (phot 1, photo2, photo 3).

I hope to give real-time responses but there are occasions where I take a bit longer.
I will always respond to you as quickly as possible.

Best Regards,
