Hello, I'm doing a large selling on eBay!!
Just letting everyone know I'm having a super large sale of my entire collection of Asian stuff. Basically all the stuff I publish on my instagram and personal collection is for sale. 3 weeks ago my dad passed away and my mother it's a little bit afraid of her future. So I'm selling my entire Asian collection of items to make our life a little bit more easy.
You will find top quality items all starting at $9.99 with no serve. I have a 100% feedback so be sure I'm a good seller. So this is a great chance to obtain good quality items at low prices. If you are not interested in any of the items please help me by spreading the word to whoever may be interested. I have satsuma, amazing Kutani cups, all beautifully hand painted. Also I have some really nice quality Chinese items. To many to list.
Even if you like European porcelain, I have a great 18th century Meissen clock and stuff like that.
Thank you for your time and have a great day.
if by any chance this is not allowed in the forum I'm really sorry.
ups forgot the link: https://www.ebay.com/usr/antiquecollector9
Good luck with your sale, there is no problem with posting things you have for sale. It is always enjoyable to see other collections.
You have some nice pieces on offer including the kinkozan vase.
@imperialfinegems It's like 10 years of collecting and picking for me.!! hope you like!!
Out of interest. Did all the buyers pay up?
Basically everything went like any other eBay sale. like 90% paid and went smoothly, some did not pay, some over paid because they were to exited and want to cancel, some wan't to pay for their items but eBay's Global shipping program now only allows them to pay for only a max of $2500. Yes, eBay is limiting ppl to pay for goods for a max of $2500. What is the point of auctioning items using global shipping program? Anyways...
It was a really fun experience but I guess I'm not the seller type of person, I just like the hunt for antiques in weird places. But then again, I'm very grateful for how things went. I guess I will re-auction some of the remaining items in a lot or something like that.
hope you having a good day...
Lots of great pieces! Love the Guangxu plates! So you cant send those Guangxu plates through the global shipping program? I'm sure they went to China... thats where all my Chinese things went. Did someone pay for the ruyi table? Love that! Cant believe I missed it.
@fuantiques Hi, it did went to China. Global shipping program has a max price tag of $2500 now, so not point of using it for some antiques. No they didn't so I resisted it and sold for a cheaper price. probably had like 15 unpaid items. resisted a few like 2 weeks ago and only 3 items sold this time. Lot's of fake account this days.
@antiquecollector9 I think ebay should be extending the global shipping program to 10,000 dollars. 2,501 dollars still isnt very enticing. I guess some auction houses would still sell it for you, but it's more expensive to do it that way. 😤
The ebay international shipping program is a scam and a nightmare, the item is shipped by the seller to a company who opens the package, handles the item replacing the box, completes the export paperwork and sends the item to the buyer, this costs additional money and causes extended delivery times. I never understood why sellers didn't want to fill out 2 additional papers for international shipping directly to their home or post office. Less expensive, less time-consuming, not more complicated. I'm not even talking about the fact that I received poorly packaged items from the third party company. Really bad as "service".
As a buyer I try to run away from sellers using this service and as a seller I do not believe that this service is offered in France and I would never use it if it were offered to me. I sell most of my items to overseas buyers and have never found it difficult to do so.
@rahawkins Yes I agree!!
I know the feeling and I understand everyones side on this matter but when I sell stuff online, at the end, I tend to go for what is better for me as a seller. Believe me I do my best to describe items as best as I can, I ship my products safely and to whatever I can to provide a good service. but no matter how good of a seller you are there is always bad people trying to scam you.... IMO.
There is like a lot of bad things that can happen when you ship yourself the items, especially when you ship expensive items. The reason I choose eBay's global shipping program is because it not only protects the buyer but also the seller. If something goes wrong they are responsible for the item and you simply don't worry about your item getting lost or you getting fake claims on your items (Very common no matter how good of a seller you are). maybe that is the reason why they lower the price because a lot of people where scamming the company.
One of the most common problems that happen when you sell and ship to other countries is that usually buyers don't want to pay import taxes and they want you to lower the price of the product on the paperwork. The reason why it's so expensive is because they pay taxes upfront. So when selling using global shipping program, you kind of force the buyer to pay for import tax and if they don't want to pay, you can simply cancel the transaction with no problems to the seller. I'm not going to risk a 5k plate just because someone doesn't want to pay taxes. If you try and do a claim insurance, you end up losing your investment, so that is the reason why I use Global shipping program. A lot of things can go wrong if you put 50 dollars on the documentation. The product can get damage on transit, it can get lost, or the person can file an item wasn't received and you can only claim $50 dollars on the item. Believe me, I had a couple of experiences like that shipping to Europe and China and lost thousands. And they buyer? of course the buyer didn't care. I guess everyone has their own experiences on the matter but IMO, this is the reason why I love using eBay's global Shipping program.

Ancient Chinese Art - Ancient History Encyclopedia
The art of calligraphy - and for the ancient Chinese it certainly was an art - aimed to demonstrate superior control and skill using brush and ink. Calligraphy established itself as one of the major Chinese art forms during the Han dynasty (206 BCE - 220 CE), and for two millennia after, all educated men were expected to be proficient at it.
