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 my 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

Hi Sally,

This mark is an apocryphal Qianlong mark. It is a recently made item. Hope you didn't apend too much on it.
