Chinese vase

Hello Peter,

I have added a picture on photobucket from the smaller writing on the left, the last line.
Maybe you can see whether this is a a cyclic calendar date?

I know you need to find the "heavenly stem" character and than the
earthly branch character,but this rather difficult for me.

Yhank you,John

Hi, John
There is no date but an artist's name. His name is "Cha Ren-yu". He seems to have lived or have been active from the late Qing dynasty to the Early Republic. There is not much information about him.

So, that would make your vase late Qing dynasty to Early Republic. :-)
