    Hi Deanteaks! So I stumbled across this site today and I absolutely love this unsolved mysteries section. I saw this piece and decided it would be an excellent challenge to test my research abilities. Before I get to it I just want to say that I am no expert so take everything here with a grain of salt. You could have a forgery or I could be entirely wrong. As it appears to me, this is what you have.

    I believe this to be a bleu de hue bottle vase with an under-glaze. It's a blue and white Chinese export porcelain. The bleu de hue pieces were made in China for the Vietnamese market. The best examples were ordered by the Vietnamese court by way of diplomatic missions to China. I don't know if it's possible to obtain an exact origin or maker of the piece. Most of them were produced in Jingdezhen, a city with a rich history of pottery. I believe the writing to say "Nei Fu" or "Inner Court". I would estimate this piece to be mid to late 19th century during the Qing dynasty (The last dynasty of China).

    I managed to find a very similar example for sale on ebay that sold for roughly $540.00 USD in April.

    So if you're looking to sell it or have it insured. Hopefully I've uncovered enough information to entice you to have an expert check it out.
