After much searching I found a very similarly detailed beehive shaped coupe displayed on an old auction site. It is described there as: CAI PORCELAIN WRITER'S COUPE 18th Century. See link below. A number of questions came to me, if you are able?
No mention there of it being apocryphal, so do you see something on mine distinct from the other to suggest mine is apocryphal and other is not? But, if not apocryphal why would it be script mark rather than seal mark which is standard for Qianlong period? Next, these two coupes are so nearly the same I wonder if from same artist or…?
Mine seems to have more wear around rim possibly from use? Does porcelain respond to use like that?
also wonder why an apocryphal would have 4 clawed dragon…in honoring past emperor why not have 5 claw?
