Chinese Bronze Vase with Ornate High Relief Figural Seal Need ID Please

by Natasha
(Vermont, USA)

I recently acquired this fantastic Chinese Vase at an online auction. When I received it, I was very surprised by its weight (15lbs) and the fine metal work. I did not see the seal until I received the vase.
If anyone can help to interpret the seal as well as provide any other pertinent information, I would be incredibly grateful.

The vase stands 16.5"H x 10"W
The Dragon are anywhere from 1- 3" deep
15lbs

Thank you

Brass vase?
by: Jackie

I have a vase similar, which I purchased in an antique shop in the 1970s. So I do not believe it is a new vase, but I would say it is brass not bronze.

This vase looks new. The metal does not have any patina. The mark says it is made during Xuande reign of Ming dynasty but is not authentic. Hope you didn't pay much for it.
