Please post all addtional pics to this thread.
You may want to resize your pictures before posting. 400X600 (or 600X400) is the largest optium size. Yours are much larger. There are peeps that try to help, but when the pics are too big, it causes problems for them and they back out of a thread. The peep(s) who back out may be the very one that can help you with your item.
The attachment option at the bottom of the page only allows one attachment to each post and you have to reply to add another pic. The attachment option also does not allow you to view the picture before you post to see if it is an appropriate size.
The alternative, and IMHO better, way to add pics is to use the tree icon in the area above where you enter text. It allows you to add multiple images to a single post from both your computer as well as from other websites and you can resize the pics before you post.

Didn';t the antiques board decide this was metal and not pottery? Not arabic writing.
