Subject:Re: Help needed - Dehua porcelain mark

I thought his marks were always gourd shaped, but thanks to your help I found the very mark on a Chinese website. Perhaps since this is such a small figure (3.75" tall w/o stand) that there was only room for the square mark.
A lucky find while picking along the way to NY - whomever first put the piece into a collection put a catalog label over the mark, so I didn't see the mark until I took the label off after I bought it.
However, the nicely carved zitan stand was enough for me to decide to pull the trigger and buy the piece.
No pressure, but would you take a shot at reading the cloth label on the inside? My photo capability of my cheap phone is not great, not to mention how worn out the label is.
