Hi Robert,

The mark on the base is a Qinq dynasty (1644-1911), Kangxi (1662-1722) reign mark written in kaishu script. You can find more information about markings at

I'm sorry I can't help with the calligraphy. The only character I recognize is the 请, which is representative of the Qing Dynasty.

Hopefully one of the seasoned forum members will can give you an opinion on authenticity. I'm very new to this.

Good luck to you,

Thank you for information Shea.

I don't know, cup looks fairly new to me, would be great if someone could confirm possible age of this cup please.

Kind regards
