Ming Yongle period vase
This is a small vase from my Grandmother's collection which I have inherited. She did all of her buying in the 1920s and 30s in New York.
Over the years, my parents tried to identify some of the porcelains and ceramics, but the now the job is mine. My Grandmother was an avid buyer of both Oriental porcelains and lace. Either one is a lifetime study.
This particular vase is marked with what looks like writing from the Yongle period according to what I can gather. I'm curious as to whether the object is authentic or a fake or a reproduction. It has been in storage since the early 40s.
I'm so glad that this website is here; it makes research so much easier than poring through poorly illustrated books.
Thank you so much.
