Chinese Qianlong (?) Vase

by Ondrej Kellner

Hi Peter,

this vase is 8.5 inch tall and all of the painting on the vase is raised. We suspect it might belong to Qianlong period. What do you think about its authenticity?

Thank you a lot for your response.

Hi, despite the authentic looking mark the vase is not of the period, in my view.
Firstly, the white glaze is much too white for period items.
Then, the enamels look too fresh, more like those of the 20th century. This includes some of the colors used.
