Would appreciate any help with respect to these markings.

The mark reads: Kangxi 康熙 Nian Zhi 年製 (Kangxi period made). The Kangxi period was from 1622 till 1722, but this mark is not.
All 4 character Kangxi marks without borders are from and around the Guangxu (1875-1908) period.
They might even be younger.
It's a pity you didn't place pictures of the object where this mark was on. In that case it helps with the dating.

When initially posted, I forgot to include image of the vase.

Hi, I think Martin is correct about Guangxu time frame. I have a jar that is the same shape and similar motif. I posted it on the forum. A knowledgeable contributor dated it to late 19th century, going by color as well as features of the foot and characteristics of paste and glaze typical of the time period. There are other examples on different auction house sites. I have read that very many were exported to the West. It seems to me though, that late 19th century may be indiscernible to early 20thc, but I don’t know. The person who replied to my post doesn’t seem to be on here anymore unless he is using a different pseudonym. Maybe someone else will be able to give a more detailed explanation if a photo of the entire bottom and interior are added. | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
