Hello,
I've seen some wonderful things being listed and have missed being out of the loop.
I had a chance to go out buying yesterday and thought I'd list one of the pieces I purchased.
It's large, looks like porcelain?, has a beautiful satin outer glaze and shiny interior glaze. I think it may have some age, and the signature looks hand painted, but I'm not sure it's old.
I was hoping that someone on here might be able to identify the signature.
Any guesses?
Big Thank You!
Tony.

    Hi Budek!
    Nice vase!
    Genuine or not that is the question?
    It purports to be Kangxi.

    This is called a Kaishu mark. It has six characters.
    Six character marks are read from right, top to bottom and then to the row on left:
    4th. 1st.
    5th. 2nd.
    6th. 3rd

    The first character is 'Da' Great
    The second is the name of the dynasty "Qing"
    The next two characters are the name of the ruling emperor
    The third Kang
    Next row
    The fourth Xi
    The fifth - Nian - Period
    The sixth - Zhi - Make

    So it is a mark of the emperor Kangxi (1662-1722).

    That will get us started, I think!

    Thanks Kevin,
    You echoed my own concerns, questioning whether or not it is a genuine old piece.
    Examining it I notice the rounded foot, an aged appearance to the exposed porcelain, and the proper mark, hand-painted.
    It has an outer satin/eggshell glaze, a shiny glaze at the top of the throat, and a still different glaze on the interior,( looks a bit coarser, but still with some shine )
    The shape doesn't ring old or antique to me, and the warm olive color makes me wonder,( when I first spied it I thought it might be mid century ).....but anything's possible
    You sent lots of great information that I've been combing through, boy is it fun!
    Thanks from the bottom of my heart,
    Tony.
