Subject:Is this a modern stamp?
Posted By: Tasha Wed, Apr 10, 2019 IP:


My grandfather has a blue-green oblong vase that has a mountain pattern on one side and characters on the other. I would like to know, is the stamp a modern one?

The vase appears to be quite modern.

The seal has no information about time or authorship.

It is actually a good wish message - 益壽延年 - to lengthen one's life.

Stamp reads,
益壽延年 - Extending life and increasing age
李伯訓句 - Text from Li Bai (Chinese 8.C poet)

The vase does look rather modern, from the end of the last century.

With regards,
