Subject:a pair of small vases with painted figures
Posted By: Sam R Fri, Oct 11, 2019 IP: 24.236.80.43

I have a pair of small vases that have a man dancing with a frog. approx. 4.5"H 4"D
I hope to know the meaning of the marking, age and any info one would care to share.
Thank You

Apocryphal marking reads,
乾隆年製 - Made in the years of Qianlong reign (1736-95)
The painted figure depicts Liu Hai - a minor immortal from the Three Kingdoms period -playing with the three legged-toad.

With regards,
I.Nagy

Hi Sam,
Based purely on your pic's I would submit that your vases date from late republic to early PROC.

Would you feel that they are period to the time?
Thank you, much appreciation...Sam

IMO based on pics late 1940's to 1960's.
