I saw this vase yesterday and was astounded byt the quality and weight. I have had a look at 'leaf' marks and the only one I can find is the Kangxi period mark.
The vase is 14cm talland has a very small opening at the top - approx 3mm.
Has anyone any ideas please?

Meiping inspired shape

Look at the meiping vases of the Ming and Qing dynasties
and you'll see where the potter has drawn his inspiration from.
This is a contemporary piece inspired by a traditional shape.

Hi, marks can be copied. This one is located off-center, which is rarely the case with traditional Chinese porcelain.

The unconventional banana leaf decoration, shape and foot rim all point to a modern production date.
