01.09.24: In my opinion regarding LOT 193: I note all figures are presently intact, the figure of Guanyin displays amber colored inclusions, the phoenix and crustacean claw with russet inclusions, the crane carved to the left side of claw has a minute chip to the tip of the beak; the pair of blue phoenix have minor chips to ends of some tail feathers; and the brush washer has a small hairline to the front edge of the lily pad, as well as several other small hairlines to the blooming lotus and stem in addition to natural fissures
