    Curious how old this piece is. The mark means Qing Dynasty which means it could be as early as 1700's.
    The base looks like it has a lot of age in its rim area where there is no glaze.
    much of the images see to have some kind of embossed image so that it appears that slip (soft clay was used to create shapes).

    Any comments at all are helpful.

    About 8" high and 8" wide, weighs a little over 4 pounds.

      This is very likely a 20th Century replica. The mark is stamped.
