I became interested in Chinese antique porcelain recently. After some reading and research, I bought this Chinese hatstand online. Is this a Qing antique Chinese Hatstand? I appreciate your help.

Peter, thanks for your expert opinion. This is very encouraging for a beginner like me.

Thanks for the additional pictures. I wanted to have a closer look at the bird, and see if a date was mentioned in the writing. There was none.

Late Qing dynasty, Guangxu reign in my view (the same as stated on the certificate). There is no problem with that.

Alice, I don't seem to be able to access the pictures with the link and username alone.

I think you need to provide a direct link. That can be copied in Photobucket on the right side, about in the middle, under "Links to share this album".

This looks indeed as if it were late Qing dynasty.
Unfortunately the pictures are a bit small. I wonder if you could upload larger pictures (partial), or if your pictures were resized during upload, you could upload to a site like Photobucket, etc. and post the link here. The writing, bird and bottom would be of special interest fora closeup view.
