I can't even imagine! :ohmy: Good for them.
A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still.

I wonder what my grandmother's vase was worth when my aunt threw it in the trash? :laugh: I wish she had lived long enough to see this after throwing all of my grandmother's collection of chineese artwork in the dump. That was in 1964. Grandmother had some of the collection from back in 1900 and earlier. She was married in 1906 and got some more pieces from her grandmother as a wedding gift.

:laugh: I'll bet someone is rummaging through the attic right now looking for Grandmother's hope chest. :laugh:

Haven't got any ming vases, but I have inherited some beautiful cut glass vases and other ceramic objects from my mother. The time has come for us to downsize our 'stuff' now, and I wonder if we would get more money for our things at an auction, or to sell privately. The only trouble is, that with all due respect, people's taste's have changed, and what we think is beautiful no longer applies. Yet I know that a couple of my things are worth a modest amount of money, but I doubt I would get what is their true worth.
