INFO WANTED ON THIS VASE PLEASE

by Andrew

Dear Peter,
I bought a small celadon vase not too long ago & was wondering if you would know when & or where it might have been made.
The greener colour is more closer to being the truer colour of the vase.
Celadon has such a long history of production from just about all over the world that I have no idea where this comes from or when it might have been made.
Any of your thoughts on this one are most welcome as usual.
regards,Andrew.

Hi Andrew,
If you didn't buy it already, don't.
I can't recognize the vase shape or decoration as Chinese, but what makes me really suspicous are the holes and the break line along the foot.
These are usually signs that the foot was attached later.
Normally, this would be done by attaching an old foot to a new body, making an item appear old. The line where old and new meet is then disguised with glaze.
