Hello:

This 4 inch high Chinese porcelain vase has the scene of Chinese children playing ~ or a festival with children ~ hand painted around its perimeter. There is a marking on the bottom of the vase that is also hand painted. The Chinese characters are surrounded by a circular mark. I've not been able to identify this piece and can't find a marking that is similar to this.

Is anyone familiar with this marking or do you know what type of porcelain this is ~ and from what time period it may be from?

Thank you!

Sally

In my view this is very new. Late 20th century or even later. The mark is unreadable. I cannot make out if it contains actual characters per se, or if it is wanting to give the appearance. Anyway, it is only for decorative purposes. No marks are like this.
