As this ornamental technique is extremely delicate and complex, and requires a great deal of skill, Okura Art China believes it is an important asset that cannot be accomplished by other companies. Using their AZURE COLORING technique, maroon/burgundy paint is applied evenly to the lip of all the dishes. The items may have been stored in unknown places, items may be scratched, dinged, dented, cracked, chipped, wrinkled, expired, etc.(Unless OTHERWISE noted specifically in the ad). So please look carefully at all pictures and ask questions before purchasing, as I may not catch all inconsistencies. PLEASE SEE MY STORE FOR OTHER ITEMS. If you win a few auctions I will probably have to send out in a couple of boxes. I DO NOT accept personal checks. Thank you and good luck.
