Hi Peter, Hi Tim,
To Peter. Thank you again for your time and expertise. Sorry, I will upload more picture at the same link after I find my magnifier.
To Tim. Your advice is fully agreeable. And I am really grateful for that. And please do not hesitate to comment because as a beginner I willing to learn from who can spare their knowledge.


Best wishes,

Underglaze red
by: Tim

Salim,

You have shown us many items that are, if authentic, rare and
desirable. Some are obvious fakes, others look "correct." Now, unless you are extremely fortunate to have found a hoard of real antiques, I say you should look at them with educated eyes. If you want to be a collector of antiques, you must be a scholar first. You must study/look at authentic antiques in books, museums, and at auctions, learn Chinese history, trade history, Chinese language, culture...etc.

One must be a student of the subject before one becomes a collector. Study, study, and study before you buy. Look often and buy little is the saying.

The bottom looks indeed as if it could be Ming. The glazed neck and white glaze is right too.
However, as genuine underglaze red items are rare, I cannot for sure tell if this is authentic or not. Would like to know myself too. Inspection with a magnifier may bring a more reliable result than merely viewing pictures, I'm afraid. :-)
