    Congratulations on this extensive research on a little known topic in the Western World!! Besides the fantastic documentation, I am particularly impressed that you have managed to acquire two antique examples of the dudou!! The 800 RMB was worth twice that! Let me now if / when you find another!!! Good work. Thank you!!
