This lovely little pot was made in china ,2" high x nearly 4" across, it has the marks for ming dynasty , chia ching, which would make it very old and valuable but I havn't had any luck in finding out for sure, ive been to the local museum and they said it looks to be authentic but wanted to send it to London for age tests which I didnt want to do!! (Post/Breakages??)
I took it to local auction rooms they couldnt tell me , so I took it to an oriental antique dealer who said if it were his he would sell it as original and did I want to sell it!
I took it to the Antiques roadshow in uk , they had a really good look amongst themselves and said its poss a 19c pot made to commemorate past dynastys rather than a copy but still a little jem..
ive had this pot for 20+ years and still dont know anything about it??
I suppose ill have to make the trip to the national museum in London to have the age tested to be sure unless someone on here can tell me more ??
Any info at all would be much appreciated
