      There you go !! Said im no expert , thanx geo foe proving that :-) lol

      I will post more pics. later today. Thanks for the information but could you tell me if Qinghai vases have much value? My parents and I were told it was bought in Japan by the person we got it from so we thought it was Japanese.

      Luis, firstly, you need to establish the vase is a real 16th Century. There are many modern made pieces with old markings.

      Genuine piece are extremely valuable. Modern made with old style markings are for tourist.

      Okay, I understand that. How can I verify it's authenticity? I would be surprised if it was fake because the purchaser was a respected business lawyer. Wether it's real or not, it is beautiful.
    8. geo26e geo26e, 8 years ago
      Post more pictures and experts on CW might be able to comment on authenticity.
    9. LuisArana79, 8 years ago
      I'm sorry about the angle. I don't know why it's rotated. I'm Really interested in hearing more about it.

      Very nice vase. Hope some experts on CW will comment. Also, welcome to collectors Weekly! George
    11. LuisArana79, 8 years ago
      Thank you, George, I would like to know what you think about it. Do you have an idea of what the price range would be if it was authentic or not. If it's not authentic would it still have a good value?
    12. geo26e geo26e, 8 years ago
      Luis, the rules of this CW site is that we do not value items here. Also, I am not an expert in Chinese pottery hence cannot make any useful comments. However, if this piece is authentic 16th century, it should make 5 figures US minimum! Try send pictures to Christies or Sothebys for advise if you believe it is real.
    13. LuisArana79, 8 years ago
      Geo, forgive me for talking about value. It wasn't my intention to talk prices; I'm simply curious if I have something of value. I will respect the site and not worry about value. Christies or Sothebys??

      Some museums can also do authentications, so check locally. You can contact Christies or Sotheby’s auction house on line. There is a form you fill out with pictures. If they think it’s worthy of a closer examination, they will arrange that with you, or they will let you know if they’re not interested. Obviously they would charge a feee for the appraisal and if you wish to sell, they would probably deduct from the commission. may also be of help.

      Wow! That piece looks like it was made for the "Imperials", my unprofessional guess is that it may be a pre Qinglong Dynasty piece. (for starters, turn the photo counter-clockwise) but you can search under vintage or antique (try one at a time, but do try both) like; vintage Chinese porcelain hallmarks. And good luck with it, but I can tell you, if you are persistent enough, you will figure it out. :) By the looks of it, it is very much worth figuring it out!
