SCROLL DOWN FOR PICTURES (33 pictures attached below).

This sale is for a very fine antique Chinese porcelain blue and white plate.

Chenghua Mark. In our view Kangxi Period.

About 6 3/8 inches in diameter.

About 143 grams in weight.

Excellent condition, no chips, no cracks, no repairs.

Mrs. Mary Morrison, was a collector, former museum curator and lecturer on Asian art at the University of British Columbia, Canada. She also played an important role in creating theCanadian Society for Asian Arts which got its start in Vancouver in 1968. Over her lifetime, she collected a fabulous collection of Chinese antiques, mostly snuff bottles, and porcelain. Most of her pieces were collected between the 1940's - 70's in England and North America. We were lucky enough to purchase some of the nicer pieces which we are offering on . All the items are completely authentic. Authenticated by Ms. Morrison, and also vetted by ourselves. This is a rare opportunity to buy pieces collected over a lifetime, and kept until death, by an expert on Chinese porcelain.

The last picture shows other items from this collection we are listing on today.

I combine items whenever possible. In many cases it will cost very little more to add additional items to the same package. Rates are determined by Canadapost based on packagedimensionsand weight. We will ONLY ship by tracked mail.

Items can be returned if not as described. Obviously I do not want to have to deal with the hassle of a return, so I am very careful to accurately describe the item, and provide detailed photographs of every angle so you can see exactly what the item looks like.

International buyers are responsible for any import tax or customs duty their Government may charge at their end.

Canadian Buyers must pay the relevant sales tax based on their address.

If you are outside of North America, please note that airmail takes 1-3 weeks, and surface mail takes 6-12 weeks.
