I have had this jar for years and never really known anything about it. I wonder how old it may be ?

There is a picture on one side of the lid and base and on the other side is what seems to be chinese writing, there is also a blue set of marks to the underneath.

There are lots of black dots randomly in the surface which look like bubbles in the glaze ?

Any info greatly received, many thanks


More pictures showing the writing


I am not sure, but it looks like republic.. I have seen similar pieces (mark and decoration) made by Jiangxi company, they were dated ca.1925/1930. But I can not read the chinese inscription, may be it can tell more. 


This is likely about 1920s to 1940s. This can be deducted from the hairstyle painted.


Very many thanks for the replies - most interesting
