Posted By: Udo B. Sat, Oct 09, 2021 IP: 126.96.36.199
I have acquired this some 18 month ago, my research indicates that the widely used reign mark for that period should be the more common archaic zhuanshu seal mark. However apparently during the first two years of the 1736 reign the rare Kaishu scripts was used, as per photo. I would like if some experts on this forum could give me some guidance as to its truthiness. Is it a modern fake, a reproduction with Apocryphal mark or is it of that period ?. Maybe the design pattern and style of painting or age marks could give a clue. Thank you in advance for your help.
