Subject:5 modern Chinese vases
Posted By: Tom Aspden Sat, Jul 06, 2019 IP:

Hi, is it possible to translate some of the markings on these 5 vases. I appreciate any help, and understand that some of these markings are indistinct.
Thanks very much,

Perhaps someone else will recognize the red seal-marks. The black cursive characters probably deserve the attention of someone better at such forms than I, but I figured I needed the practice.

1 - 竹/zhu/BAMBOO; 2 - 梅/MEI/PLUM; 3 - 法/FA/LAW & BUDDHIST DOCTRINE; 4 - 壶/HU/POT?; 5 - 東/DONG/THE EAST?. (NOTE: I'm fairly confident of the first three, but lukewarm about the last two.)

Best regards,

Bill H.

Thanks very much Bill H, I guessed that the markings may represent the painting, and certainly that fits for 1&2, but you have helped to confirm it.
