The hand-painted decoration and apocryphal base-mark of "Made during the Qianlong Reign" suggest your vase could have been made between the 1940s and early 1960s.

Best regards,

Bill H.

thank you bill. so its safe to say its a reproduction. possible to place a value on this item?

It would be a reproduction only in the sense that it is a theme from Chinese classical literature that was mass-produced on painted porcelain over the years, including circa the mid-20th century, when this one was made. You can sometimes price-check vases like it on eBay and liveauctioneers.com. I don't collect this period, so lack a ready grasp of auction results or other sale prices.

Best regards,

Bill H.

I agree with bill's post.
These types of wares 25yrs ago were worth next to nothing. However in more recent times they have found a place in the market.
I believe your vase probably dates from the 1960's.
Interesting that cobalt blue was not found much on porcelain during the occupation period of about 1936-45 due to the Japanese invasion etc.
Is their any calligraphy on the other side?

Hi Richard,
Thank you for posting further pictures of your vase.
As I do not read/speak the language I am unable to translate the calligraphy etc.
I did find a similar seal/chop mark to yours dated to the late 1940,'s however no further information was available.
Perhaps other members may be able to help?
I would submit that the added calligraphy and iron red marks would IMO further enhance the value of your item.
I am in the same boat as Bill when it comes to collecting/valuing mid to later 20th century items.
Netherless, your vase is very attractive, well painted for the period with excellent calligraphy and marks.
