Hi guys I think this might be a replica but not entirely sure!

Let me know your thoughts!


Without a hands-on inspection it is difficult to tell much. Two things, however -  if this was antique I would expect it to be Qianlong reign (imperial) rather than Yongzheng, and the mark is unusual for Yongzheng. Yongzheng marks usually used 'kaiti' characters, and a single line mark would not  positioned in such a location, normally. My personal opinion.


In my view this can only be either imperial or fake. The complicated shape and pristine condition leave no other choice.
Wares used by the people were utilitarian and more simple.
