export ware?
by: James

Better pictures would help. The "3 green leaves" are actually bats, which is a common decoration, especially on later Qing period items. This one could be an export ware.

The pictures are too small. Please provide closeup pictures of bottom, foot rim and decoration.
Image resolution should be sufficient to see details clearly.

As an alternative, links to pictures on Photobucket or another website can be posted.
