    Hey Guys,

    I came across these 3 interesting (chinese?) items this morning in a thrift store. Unfortuantley the prices aren't thrift store cheap though (£100, £80 & £30). Can anyone shed any light on them from these shakey photo's?

    Oriental arts are such a minefield I wouldnt take a chance unless i knew for certain they were genuinely old. Just my opinion.

    Someone in that charity shop is having a giraffe, to use rhyming slang.

    Haha... my thoughts exactly. Funnily enough, these were sandwhiched between a stuffed giraffe and a pack of used handkerchiefs.
