Identification of several pieces and marks including dates. Your help is appreciated. no 2
The second lot of photos is of a small tea cup which has gold gilt painting and a deep blue to it. it has three characters in gold gilt around the top outer edge and a gold gilt painting of a plant.
Any info as to date and age, period, who and marks and what the characters read would be greatly appreciated. I was led to believe again that this could possibly be 17th more likely 18th century, but I will let you guys be the judge and get back to me on it
