My parents were collectors of fine porcelains which included Dresden, Meissen and Spode, all first factory. We attended auctions at Sothebys ~ Parke Bernet, NYC whenever there was an auction, so, antiquing is really in my DNA. I attended GIA and became a Graduate Gemologist. After my schooling I owned a Jewelry store in New York dealing in Fine Gems. My personal collection leans toward Oriental and my greatest finds are Straits porcelain pieces. When buying items for sale here on Ebay I buy with my heart and only items that I would want for myself. I try to research the items to the best of my ability so when I present them I can give an honest description. My commitment to my buyers is a promise of honesty.
From a Network Spotlight: "It's also worth noting that Paula has been published in at least three books and quite a few newspapers including the business section of the Sunday New York Times.
