Made a Video for my Auction July 31st
The auction ends on the 31st of this month. It is a mix of antique and contemporary items. Some are European and American. Most are Asian.
The video doesn't feature everything, nor is everything in the video for sale, but it should provide some scale for the visually oriented on some of the items.
You have some nice pieces on offer. I like the Japanese bronze figure and the lacquered pair.
Can I get more info on this piece please I actually collect these figures.
He is available as a buy-it-now.
I got the Kilin from a seller in Europe earlier this year. He has some crusty material inside, which suggests to me that he has indeed been used for incense at some point in his life.
This one is in bronze. I'm not 100%, but I think this model was cast in other metals as well.
Good luck on your sales!! I just got murdered at eBay.
Good luck on your sales!! I just got murdered at eBay.
I'm worried about it. Over 100 watchers over the past few days, but only 12 items have bids in place.
sorry not trying to scare ya, my bad.
for the last 3 months, my sales not only have fewer views and watchers, but also, the selling prices have cut almost in half or even lower. Even watching Peter's videos the only thing I hear is something like, see "leave a bid" this used to sale for this X amount and that should be like a warning sign. But hey, maybe it's just me, lol. I have sold for over 10 years now on eBay and yeah this time of the year is super slow, add the "bad" economy to the formula and you are up for a treat. Maybe everything will kind of go back to the point it was when the larger companies renew their operations, but then again, maybe is just me. lol
Wish you the best.
Thanks. I'm surprised right now because I think most if not all of the American and European lots have bids, and only a couple of the Asian ones do. I was expecting it to be the other way around.
@lotusblack After taking a penlight to the interior, I'm pretty sure the issue is that it has been used previously as a planter.
I added this photo to the listing. Ebay has zoom enabeled.
I also found this listing, which you should check out. I can't compete with the price this seller has on it. It looks nice, but does appear to have a dent to one of its legs:
@antiquecollector9 @rahawkins It really is a hit or miss. I sold two pieces this month and actually did better than I expected. I sold three pieces last summer for way less than I expected. One thing I noticed is that having your pieces end on a Sunday night seems to be the winning time. List on a Thursday night for a 10 day auction. I am east coast US, so I did mine to end at 9:30ish PM and I got the highest bids I have in a bit. Nothing crazy though.
@rahawkins thanks for the better photos definitely a nice censor. As for eBay selling I have noticed a huge decline so I’m putting items on the shelf. My booth has also been slow only selling $5 dollar items. This is a sign of jitters in an economy that’s showing signs of recession.
@lotusblack I'm not expecting the recession to last super long, but that's probably a good idea.
I don't know that etsy seller that I linked, but he or she has several good items that I think are underpriced compared to some auction prices.

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.
