    This is one of my many Thrift purchases...its a Chinese Ginger Jar that was made into a lamp.....I'm guessing probably during the early 20th century maybe?...It's approx. 12in ht...and is in great condition.... 20190603_143232.jpg 20190603_143519.jpg 20190603_150410.jpg 20190603_143708.jpg 20190603_143717.jpg 20190603_142520.jpg 20190603_142804.jpg 20190603_142655.jpg

    I'd think 1960s when Asian imports were popular decorative items. Sweet size. Shame it doesn't have its original shade.

    I doubt this was 'made into' a lamp - it has always been a lamp.

    I didn't pay much for it, there was a identical lamp that sold on Ruby Lane or 1st dibs...so that's promising ....and I did have it appraised a couple of yrs ago...and I can sell it for several hundred dollars ...so I'm okay with that

    Forgive me but... I don't see any great value in your lamp. Would you be kind enough to post the link to the Ruby Lane listing? And why are you still uncertain as to the jar's age if you've already had your lamp appraised? (I assume that, in order to assign a value, your appraiser would have had to identify the period.)

    I have been collecting Chinese porcelain for several yrs...and have had quite a few appraisals on a reputable site.....and I do have the evaluation in my emails but I don't feel the need to look it up....and listen....I 'don't have to prove anything to you or anyone else here on this site....now if you are so concerned about whether or not a Lamp like this one was listed and sold on Ruby Lane or 1st Dibs.....then you can look it up or give them a call.....I don't need you to see great value in my Lamp.....and I don't recall asking you of its value

    I come on this site to share picks of my Thrift finds for fun......and when I have purchased things that I believe are valuable....I get them appraised by a reputable appraiser....some of those I may post on this site without disclosing that they have already been appraised....and other things I may want to know the age...and I will ask....

    In one word?

    Rude!

    I was wondering: is there a way to block a user so we don't see their postings?

    EDIT:

    Found it! Click on user, then there is an option, "Ignore". Done!

    (For some reason, it makes my stomach cramp when I see posts like these.)
