    Wondering how old this might be. I was told the bottom reads made in the Kangxi years. I don't know what to think. Thanks

      Kangxi is correct. The mark, rotated 90 degrees clockwise reads top down and right to left, Kangxi, Period Made. The Kangxi reign in the Qing dynasty lasted from 1662 to 1722. Your mark is very close to a known period mark, and the decoration is well done, so it might be worthwhile to to pursue an appraisal. If you have a museum with an Asian collection, or an auction house in your area, those would be a good starting point. Good luck.

      Nice! It's a ginger jar. Originally used to store ginger salt or rare spices. The jars are called ginger jars as they often contained ginger when they were exported. Used to have a domed lid, rare to find one though with intact lid.

      the base mark was done with a stamp, so i doubt it's actually kangxi. it's what's known as an honorific mark - made in honor of the period, rather than of the period.

      Never trust emperor marks.

      Painting is poorly done, the glaze color is wrong, the foot is wrong. . . made in the last 20 years.

      Great XVIII century finds in thrift shops and garage sales should be reserved for those still believing in Santa Claus.

      IVAN49, I mean rare, but not fictional like Santa Claus. More like the lottery.
