Subject:Re: Early-mid century Chinese vase with unique mark

The mark reads down and across from the right as 'Ting Song Zhai Zhi' (聽松齋製), 'Made for the Studio of Listening to Pine Trees'. Almost everything I can find regarding this mark indicates it dates to the Republic period (1912-49), but the Jingdezhen website jdzmc.com makes reference to a Kangxi period 'Hall of Listening to Pine Trees' (Ting Song Tang - 聽松堂) and Qianlong period 'Hut of Listening to Pine Trees' (Ting Song Lu - 聽松廬).
The embedded link below is a 2015 auction listing for a pair of vases with the same mark. The description indicates the mark was used from the late Qing to Republic years, although the galleried treatment around the outside of the neck isn't something I could find on Qing vases of this form in any of my references.
