Thank you both again, gentlemen, for taking the time to give your much-valued opinions.
When compared to the vibrancy of the subjects in Bill's pics, the two-dimensional 'flatness' of the painting becomes more obvious to me, as well as the lack of enthusiasm and fluidity in the work.
The same could be said of the Republican (????) Vase (Posted Dec 18th) with an image of a chicken - which for some strange reason always reminds me of Foghorn Leghorn !
Needless to say, I will not be proceding with the purchase of either piece offered to me.
Your comments regarding the black lines and transfer printing have been duly noted and will definately be of use to me in the near future - that's if I haven't given up all this Chinese porcelain business as a bad job and gone back to stamp collecting !!
Wishing you happiness, and above all, good health in the coming year.
