Mr. Olof
Again sir, I thank you for you knowledge. This has been very difficult (yet interesting) for me trying to find out any information on these inherited "family treasures". And being someone who has no idea about asian art, it is nice to know that there are kind and helpful people out there to assist you. Thank you again!
