Subject:Porcelain Vase translation

Need help with the age and translation of this vase. Thank you in advance

Your Japanese-style vase has an apocryphal mark of "Made during the Qianlong reign of the Great Qing Dynasty". The mark is very similar to some used in the late 20th century by a Macao factory that ornamented Chinese ceramic blanks with transfer-printed patterns. notes that some of these product had paper labels with the initials C.P.C. and a triangular stamp with numbers. It looks like someone might have obliterated something from your vase, but there does appear to be a triangular stamp, albeit unreadable, to the right of the Qianlong mark in your middle photo. Best guess is your vase may be another C.P.C. product from the third quarter of the 20th century.

Best regards,

Bill H.

What a mishmash. Obviously by subject and style a Japanese vase, but the mark on the base is more than apocryphal - it reads Great Qing QianLong year made - 大清乹隆年製. | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
