Subject:Help with identifying porcelain _ pottery mark
Posted By: sinder Sun, Nov 04, 2018 IP: 2600:8807:8580:770:2


I'm looking to identify this piece of porcelain I picked up.

I cannot seem to find a similar seal/hallmark anywhere.

Is this a new piece, a phony seal ? It almost seems to have TOO much going on with it.

I really try to identify a piece before I ask, but I'm stumped on this one.

Thank you

This appears to be a 3rd quarter, 20th century or later product of one of the Chinese porcelain ornamentation factories operating in Hong Kong or Macao, which long have specialized in transfer decoration of porcelain blanks. The imperfect six-character mark appears to read down and across from the right as "Made by Imperial Order, Qianlong Reign of the Great Qing Dynasty (Da Qing Qian-long Yu Zhi - 大清乾隆御製). There was no such mark on Qianlong-period porcelain, which may have complicated your effort to identify it.

Best regards,

Bill H.

thank you Bill H.

I would have never been able to trace down that much information and I put some serious time in trying to identify it. :)

I appreciate your help and that you took the time to respond.

kind regards,
