Subject:Help with identification
Posted By: Steve Rogers Fri, Sep 13, 2019 IP:

Im sure this is a knock off piece that we just picked up but you never know right?

Can anyone help with the signature?

the seal or signature is very sloppy,indicating a high speed workmanship ,a recent production

Not a signature, a reign mark. 乹隆年製. "Made in a year in the reign of QianLong".

But not Imperial, and almost certainly not of the period.

While it has the colour and appearance of ivory, I suggest a test with a hot needle to check for plastic. | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
