      seems to say dao guang nian zhi (1821-50)

      I was checking Gotheborg's site for you GTMOM and I can match the first row of characters in their Qianlong section but that second row is a real jumble. Marks in "zhuanshu" (archaic seal script) are actually drawings and not hand writing. So they're hard to read if not written properly. If it were marked by hand an not stamped could be the potter was uneducated or just had sloppy hand writing. At least that's what I've read researching my pieces.

      I had serious problems too when checking gotheborg's site it's a very small zhuanshu mark.... diameter of the pot is less than 2.5inch and in the center of this zhuanshu mark a "glaze" bubble is partially popped... makes it hard to decipher

      they just left the da ging out , that,s all
    5. apostata apostata, 4 months ago
      it does not make sense to leave the da ging out during the daoguang period to make it it an abbreviated daoguang, the flames ( from the normal chasing pearl theme does,not make sense) they are close the vertical , i think it is not even a guanghu tribute to the daoguang period

      actually for decades i have been in wars for this type of ferro red marks with auction houses, because they stakes are high , daogang and jiaging versus late republic or even later porcelain ( big stakes discussion ) it may sounds rather megalomananic , but i think i got the far better odds this time this peace is not made earlier then late reupblic period or even later later , sorry for my arogance , but it alaways sucks that auction houses rip the slightly ignorant people , no offense i hope
