Chinese porcelain vase
by Reggie Giguere
I have a vase with Chinese marking on the bottom and vertical writing-along with flowers & bamboo -all around it. I have searched for some insight into when it was made etc...to no avail. The following is some information provided to me by an acquaintance of a relative who resides in Shanghai. I was told the vase was manufactured by the Jingdezhen Manufacturing of China in Jingdezhen, China. But not the time period etc...
Here's what the email said:
"In the bottom side, it’s “中国景德镇制造”, which means it’s made in “中国景德镇”.
中国景德镇 is a famous place where the best china are made. This should be a very nice vase.
In the out side, there are four drawings with poems from the ancients with the author name, date and seal.
The poems are as below:
Name:《折枝兰》 A poem praises orchid.
Name: 《观美人》 A poem praises beautiful girl.
Name: 《菊》 A poem praises chrysanthemum.
Name: 《吴王美人半醉》 A poem praises of one of the four most famous and beautiful girl. Her name is Xishi.
Can someone tell me when this vase was made & by whom? If it has any value, I would like to have it insured.
