|Tall narrow neck and flaring foot|

As I am seeking a Certified Appraisal Report. Any information on such an individual will be very appreciated. We have made a few contacts in the past, which I have listed below. The purpose in this search is we would like to eventually sell this piece.
In January 2000, photos were sent to Indianapolis Museum of Art and Mr. James Robinson, Curator Asian Art felt it could date from the late 14th century/Ming dynasty 1368-1644. He states it has more restraint than most later examples from the Qing dynasty 1644-1911.
October of 1999 we received a Retail Replacement Value for Insurance coverage, not a Certified Appraisal Report from Blackard and Geiger, Ltd.
Linking up with the below wonderful Hosts! Have you ever sought out an appraiser for anything?
