Antiques by Ben
« on: October 23, 2013, 11:34:37 PM »
Hi long time no hear!!!, just been very busy lately but nonetheless here's some pics for you. Yes, there where the blue and white series plates, vases and bowls; there's also an ancient Han dynasty sword but that would follow next, for the meantime, just content yourselves with these types.

Ben welcome back! Where did those plates (items) come from? If they came from a shipwreck I'd be very interested to know more about those. The photos are not very clear but at lease we can see some of the details there.

Ben, do you know where those ceramics came from or how long they have been in that family?
