    Hi, you are correct, this is a kendi, usually associated with Ming dynasty. The mark is read top down and right to left, the first two characters as Great Ming. The bottom character and top right would be the reign mark, but I can't relate them to a reign, so possibly an apochryphal mark. The last two characters read 'Period Make'.
    Regards, Jim
