Subject:Chinese Vase, probably a replica
Posted By: Chris Fri, Jan 24, 2020 IP:

My partner found this lovely vase amongst her late father's possessions. After doing some research we think it might be a replica of a 15th century Chinese vase. Can anyone confirm this, and would you have any idea what the value could be?

Judging by the perfection of the glaze and lack of any hint of toasting on the biscuit foot, I'd say your assumption is warranted. I note there's a hint of the double circle under the glaze on the foot, which would have been traced in underglaze cobalt if this was a Kangxi original with faux Ming mark of 'Made during the Chenghua Reign of the Great Mind Dynasty', as seen on your example.

Maybe we'll hear other opinions on what I believe may be an example of a computer applied pattern, at least as good as the decoration on a souvenir mug from your favorite soccer club.
