Subject:Unusual Mark
Posted By: Tony Thu, May 21, 2020 IP:

Dear friends,
I have a vase with a mark at the bottom. However, the mark is unusual ...otherwise resembling the Qianlong normal four-character mark!
I wish to simply know what the meaning of the writing (3rd word) :)
When I have a chance to unpack it and post more pictures, we can discuss about artistic design and authenticity :))

This mark reads down and across from the right as 'Made by Imperial Order, Qianlong Reign' (Qian-long yu zhi - 乾隆御製).

Best regards,

Bill H.

Dear Bill H.,
Thank you so very much for your time and kind help in translating the writing!
I know ZERO chinese and guessed the 3rd word (upper left) was along the meaning of "instructed to, specifically for, ...". Thanks for the exact translation Bill H. :))
