Hi Peter, this is another vase to my collection, I got it at the same place as the b/w brush washer, I think this could be early republic, I was told it is 19th century, this vase is 20-1/4" High and the width is 10-1/2" it is a very heavy vase and good size, It has age signs. Let me know if you need anymore pictures, this is porcelain, I am not sure of its age, any help would be great. thanks, Stan.

Hi Stan,
Glad you understand that it is probably not from the Yongzheng period, which the mark indicates.
This type of vase and monochromes are pretty much out of my range of knowledge. I buy some too, if the opportunity arises, but mostly they are from the late Qing dynasty.
Not sure if yours could be republic period, here they would probably think late Qing.
In Chinese this type of color glaze is called "kiln changed glaze". That is because it is impossible to control or predict the color of the glaze. It all happens in the firing process, without humans interfering. Some look not very appealing, as a result. This one looks very nice, with good colors.
