@Chadrinkincat of course.

It all boils down to how well one knows and trusts the person selling.

@DailyTX stellar reputation for antiques, western accessible? Only Zisha Art gallery comes to mind. But no ROC hongni in perfect condition incl shipping to be found there for that price :)

Haha I should have guessed that Zisha Art Gallery. I think my issue with them is no price listed for their antique pot, so hard to compare pricing.

At a certain level of antiquity, prices are in flux... also will depend who’s asking :)

Also what to compare it with? Designs and qualities are multiple, not one is alike to another.

The other strategy is to just put outrageous price like The Chinese Teashop does ;)

I guess you really need to build a relationship with those antique dealers in order to get a decent price. It’s like buy tea in China, you walk in to the shop, speak the same language, you get a price. You walk in to the shop with someone who has a relationship with the shop, you get another price. You walk in to the shop speak English, you get rip off like crazy :D

Unfortunately, that means buying a lot from them before haha... But back to ZAG, I have a friend who bought quite a bit from them, so I have little doubts about their integrity.

I am glad to hear they are known for their integrity. Now, just need to raise some funds, add them to my Asian travel route ;)
