Provenance: This is one lot of approx. 30 lots in this sale from the estate of Mr. & Mrs. Nancy & Henry Marks, owners of Dynasty Orientalia, Fayetteville, PA. The vast majority of the business inventory was liquidated by the family many years ago however this grouping remained in storage with Southern heirs residing south of Atlanta until now. Nancy and Henry traveled to Asia to purchase much of their inventory and were active in the Baltimore and Washington, DC antiques show circuit in the 1970s and 1980s. Some of their items retain decades old price tags from shows which we have left intact for historical perspective.
Condition: Very sound and attractive estate discovery condition with no chips or cracks. A few tiny brown firing specks including on the underside base ring, on the standing water buffalo and in the clouds.
