    I've had these for a long time. I have 2 of them. China on bottom is signed with a backward N. They are 2 1/2 inches tall. Does the paint look like a later paint? Do you think they are Qing. Thanks

      Thanks Jim, Can you tell me why you think that it's 2oth century. I was told that it was Qing Jar with later paint. So is that what you are referring to, the paint? And do they still just put CHINA on porcelain. I'm here to learn.

      This is really why I don't buy to much Asian Porcelain... It really is confusing. This is what I was told by somebody else.

      The mark with the reversed N was probably an error and one of the earliest English marks in the late Qing dynasty. The bottom and foot rim of your jar look indeed as if they could be from that time. Unfortunately, the enamels and colors used are relatively modern. These were applied later in the 20th century.
      Thick enamels not corresponding to the age of the ceramic body is often found in items which were modified. Somebody likely repainted a plain item, or one with a simple decoration, in order to increase its perceived value. Unfortunately, collectors frequently don't consider such items to be antiques as the decoration is much "younger".

      Could be late Qing or Republic, old but not delicate.
