We are talking about collecting flow blue. You might want to try to decide which pattern it is you might want to collect and we have a few examples here we want to show you today. This is the Formosa pattern. On the back side it has Formosa and you can see most of it is flowing and it is very hard to read but you can see the pattern pretty well on the back. This gives you an idea. A lot of oriental Maltese were popular in the early 1800's so you will see this is oriental in design so that is the Formosa pattern. We also have over here, oops, over here we have this cup plate here and you can see it says Ironstone in Yangcheng. It is Clementsons pattern. This is a later pattern. You can see the top and bottom that there is not as much flow on it and here is the pattern and this is just a saucer to a cup and saucer. We have the top right there, the cup that goes on there and it is a pretty oriental design; an earlier pattern.
