Baisha Naxi Embroidery Institute 
A Nice Purchase Of  Embroidery  From USA

Dear Mr. Chen:
In October of 2012, my family and I visited your institution. We purchased an embroidery of a vase with a dragon on it    called "the dragon porcelain", which you sent to us in   Connecticut,
USA. At that time we were also looking at an   embroidery of a tea pot. You had two small brown tea pots  hanging on the wall, immediately to the right as you entered  the gallery, one above the other. I am wondering if you still  have the embroidery of one of the tea pots or one like it. It  was small and in a brown color. If so, I would be interested in  purchasing it. If possible, I would appreciate you emailing me  a picture as well as the dimensions and the cost. I look  forwarded to hearing from you and hopefully making a  purchase.
Thank you very much.

Dear Jack

It is great hearing from you. I will send you a picture of the  art hanging when I return home. I have also sent you another email earlier asking for some more information on the teapots which you will receive before this email. I am hoping we can  work out a process that will allow many more people in my  community to order art from you.

Appreciatively

Richard

Could you please tell me the cost for   each one in RMB? I would like to know the size of each   embroidery canvas without the matting and frames. And  could you tell me the something about the artist and when  the  pieces were made.

The inner size is 35x35cm, the outer size is 50x50cm, The  price is: 3340RMB including shipping fee (by air), insurance  without frame.  The artist is Mulan,a Naxi lady, the first class of national embroidery artist,24 years experience of doing  embroidery, very good at embroidering still lives, one of the 8 most famous Naxi embroidery masters in our Institute,52 years old.
Best wishes to you and your family!

Hello, Dear Jack

I am hoping to order other pieces from you online. I have  several friends interested in purchasing embroideries. I also  make trips to China annually and plan to see you again.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Richard

Dear Jack

My wife Nan sent me a picture of the Dragon Porcelain and as you requested and I am forwarding it to you. It hangs in the  entrance hall of our home with a spot light shinning on it.  Guests to our home, many of whom collect art, are always  commenting on how beautiful it is.  We love it.

Appreciatively

Richard

Hi Jack.

I spoke with American Express today. They will allow you to  charge the cost of the two embroideries to me on my  American Express card for the next three days. If this works for you I will give you my address and American Express card number.

Dear Jack,
Thank you very much for all your help. Since this is a new  process for me, I am uncomfortable wiring the money to a  private or personal account rather than directly to the  business or institution I purchased a product from. I am not  certain how this will all work out. Here is my plan. I hope that  it is acceptable to you.
I will wire you the monies today for one teapot. I will send you an email with the picture of the teapot I've chosen. If all goes well, and there are no problems in my receiving the  embroidery, I will wire you the monies for the second teapot.
If this purchase for both teapots goes well, then I will feel  comfortable purchasing other costly embroideries this way.  There were other magnificent pieces of art, which friends or I might like to purchase in the future. I took many pictures    inside the gallery when I visited and have them on record. I  realize that the pieces I saw may have been sold, but I am  certain you have others, which are equally beautiful. I need to feel comfortable that buying art this way can be done without difficulties. I look forward to hearing from you. I plan to  email you a picture of the teapot I would prefer. It is  presently framed. Hopefully, you can take it out of its frame  and send it to me after you receive the monies for one teapot in the amount of 540 USD.
Sincerely,
Richard Ruben MD

Dear Jack

If possible I would like to purchase the teapot which in this  email is the one on the top. It is in the frame without the  orange identification card init. It has the wooden handle. If  possible I hope you can take it out of the frame and exchange it with the other one you sent me a picture of in the other  email which is not framed. My next purchase will be the one  below.Is the artist of these embroideries the same one that  did the unframed teapots?

I am waiting to hear from you. I am very excited about the  possibility of developing a working relationship in which I and  my friends can acquire many more beautiful embroideries.

Sincerely

Richard

Dear Jack
I was waiting to hear from you before I wired the money, as  you directed I will wire you $540 for the one teapot today. if this process works well I will wire you another $540 for the  second teapot as soon as I receive the first.
I am exited to see if this process works well so we can begin  to order much larger and more colorful pieces safely.
Many thanks in advance.
