Antiue Chinese Porcelain Brush Pot identification

by Greg Williams
(Johnston, IA)

Hello, we purchased what appears to be an antique Chinese Porcelain Brush Pot and am having a hard identifying the markings on the base. This is our first venture into antique Chinese porcelain so we were hoping someone might be able to tell us what we have? I have linked photos from photobucket that show the brush pot's mark and scene.

Thank you for your help,

Greg and Tamra

Hello,

This brush pot has a Tongzhi reign mark and is painted in a fencai painting style that indicates that it was made either in the Tongzhi or early Guangxu reign. Normally this would be attributed to the Tongzhi reign.

Very nice condition for a Qing dynasty antique.
