  1. I love blue and white anything, and these are fabulous!

  2. is it some very obvious and unnecessary message again? BANG BANG.

  3. They speak to me , I know where he's coming from.

  4. to me they look more Persian than Chinese. could it be because of the shapes of the bottles?

  5. Dear Mr Toms: It illustrates the adage 'new wine in old bottles' in an interesting new twist.
    Dear Bang Bang: Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps.
    Dear Anon 1: Art does that sometimes.
    Dear Anon 2: And so they do... but there is overlap isn't there, between the Ming Blue and white and the persian due to trading.
