Found this teapot at a thrift store. I've been looking at the Ming Xuande Dynasty era but haven't had much luck. I found this picture online, but it doesnt give me any leads to what it means or if its antique or a fake. I am not able to put a picture of mine as I am not on my personal pc. But my teapot is exactly like the one shown above. Mine looks more green in color. As soon as I get to my personal pc I will post the pic of mine. I found this pot by itself with out the teacups a local Savers thrifty store I seen it and noticed the markings on the bottom. I bought It and brought it home to research. I have read about fake pottery and if anyone out there knows of these sort of markings or pottery by all means your input is appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi, the mark reads top down and right to left: Great Ming Hsuan Te Period Make (1426 - 35), also known as Xuande reign. The pot is likely from the last 20 - 30 years. It's not a fake in the sense that it could be sold as an original (!). Dynastic marking are common on untold quantities of modern porcelain. Hope this helps, and best wishes, Jim
