Subject:Chinese Vase
Posted By: Lonnie Wed, Jan 24, 2018 IP:

Hi. I think this is the Qianlong mark, but it doesn't look like it came from that period. I was wondering if it might be a Republic era piece? I haven't seen this kind of background design before. There was gilding which has worn away and the interior looks older, so I thought it might be early 20th C? Also, the "Da" part of the mark looked strange to me. Any ideas?? Thank you!

I agree, your vase looks to be Republic (early 20th c.).

The blue mille fleur (thousand flower) is not something that I've seen before, either, but further supports the piece being of the Republic period where a lot of artistic liberties were taken.
