The area is shown in the last two pictures. I have over fifty years of experience in working with antique Chinese porcelain. My father had an antique shop before he retired, and most of these items are from there.I examine the items and attempt to show and describe them accurately, including any damages. As these items are very old, I may not be entirely sure of the exact age, or that there are no small damages in discreet places, but I try my best. If you do not feel secure about the condition, authenticity, etc. If you have any questions, please message me.
