Hi Hanh,
If you compare your Qianlong mark with other authentic Qianlong marks, you will clearly see the difference. I really agree with Peter that you have to study the style, painting, glaze and shape. You should not rely solely on mark. Please have a look at authentic pieces and mark on major auction houdse websites.

mark
by: peter

Hi Hanh,
I mentioned earlier that you cannot judge an item's authenticity by the mark. Have you ever read the section on Marks in the left menu, as I recommended before? You should also follow the several links at the bottom of that page and read/understand their content.
Judging Chinese porcelain by the mark is done only by novices. The shape, painting, colors, etc. of the current item are just not correct for ANY antique. I recommend not to buy so-called "antiques" before getting to know more about Chinese antiques in general. 99% of what is on the market is fake. You can find genuine ones only if you have specialized knowledge to recognize them, or if you have a reliable supplier.
Next time, I would suggest you first make a picture and ask here, before buying. That may save you a lot of money. Honestly said, even the fakes I see here in Taiwan are usually of much better quality than this.
I would suggest you get a reliable supplier who does not sell you fakes, when he sees that you are unable to recognize genuine antiques.
Please also read this page: http://www.chinese-antique-porcelain.com/antique-chinese-porcelain.html.

Now to Logoi, this is a language company that put some articles on their website to attract visitors. They are NOT specialized in Chinese ceramics or antiques.
Their pictures of Qianlong marks - forget all but the two blue ones. The other ones are all 20th century marks - the character style proves it. 18th century Qianlong marks do not use this style. You won't find these among period marks.

Anyone can get a chop (stamp) engraved with these characters and use it to mark anything. That is what is frequently happening (until the present) with new items. This mark became popular only later in the 20th century. I would look for a better source of marks knowledge, one who knows which marks are old and which are new. Just knowing Chinese characters does not help either - the mark says "Qianlong" for sure, but the style it is written in is not right for marks of that period.

Again, we judge authenticity of each item on a number of different criteria, but not based on the the mark, because it is the most unreliable factor and it is most easily faked.
Shape, painting style and color are all wrong with your item. It has nothing to do with the mark.

Hi Hanh,
This is definitely not Qianlong. All the things, mark, shape, drawing and colour, are wrong.

Hi Hanh,
I'm afraid this is a fantasy creation that is recognizable from a distance as such.
