Hi again, I would appreciate your help in identifying the mark on this vase.


It's a really badly written Qianlong mark. It's missing the little nipple on the first character mark and the S and is really sloppy. I guess this must be something of the later second half of the 20th century.


I agree, the painter of the mark may have been unsure how to paint the character strokes properly. This item is relatively recent, perhaps twenty years or so?


Thanks to both of you for your help.  I have had the vase for about 45 years so at least I know it is that old.  It is so nice to have people ike you that take the time to look at our things.
Thanks again,


If it was 45 years, then there is a good chance that it was not made in China, but perhaps in Hong Kong or Macao or the like. At that time China had not opened up yet for international commerce, and the use of an apocryphal mark like this one would have been unlikely. The major faking only started ten or so years later. My personal opinion.
