I wonder if anyone would like to give their opinion on two vases that is possibly connected with the Fonthill Heriloom collection, sold at Susanin's Auctions a while ago.
A very fine cloisonne vase:
And a Qianlong marked blue and white vase:
The quality of the later added brass work of the cloisonne vase resembles those added to the cloisonne works in the Fonthill collection, and the blue and white vase is almost identical to a vase posted by 'connor mcgregor', which had a Fonthill Heriloom sticker to the base.
The vase from Susanin's Auctions just turned up at ebay, but where the brass settings have been removed, so you can see the details, including the base with the mark and the footrim:
It was dated to the 20th century however, but there is at least one example of a similar vase sold in another auction house that was also dated to the twenty century, but sold for the price of an imperial mark and period example:
I found some links with images of the cloisonne works in the Fonthill Collection, but I'm having troubles relocating them, so I'll have to post them later.
