    i think this is a very rare Kangxi bowl - signed. I love the damage to it, because it's the only way i could ever afford it. i'd love to learn more about it if anyone knows these. Thank you!

      The copper red ceramics from Ming/Qing dynasty are not something for beginner. I think this one is a fake but the foot rim looks OK. Why? Because if it was real, this sort of piece are called ??, which are under-glazed copper red porcelains. This one is over-glazed. Why the foot rim looks OK? Because it Could be repaired and re-glazed with genuine foot from a damaged piece.

      That's my two cents. An similar auction record can be found here

      i dont know what is , i am guessing an sort of granula flambe , the mark is rather delicate , it is not a one stroke signing, i am guessing late qing maybe early republic ?, i wonder if this is sprayed i love this very much

      thank you apostata. what does the mark say?
    8. apostata apostata, 2 months ago
      da qing kangxi nian zhi , looks difficult but actually it is simple , because the mid under got 4 dots

      i ruled it out to real kangxi , because of the bottom glazing , and there aren,t much monocores and if there they are mostly tangluo xi ( water bassins ) this form monocolor is not known to me, IMO it is not a peachbloom glazing and this is an sort of granula glazing and not an official form , it is not dry copper glaze

      this type of bowls i think appear from late guanghu to yesterday

      i think the really the very got an denser glazing, hard to assess the corrion , because an part is likely overflow but IMO it got some age

      this is the academic discussion i extrapolated ( 4 character and 6 chartaer mark ) not real meticolous but to get an idea

      discussion between the experts Lei RuiChun and Bill Hewick ( take care it is extrapolated!!)

      Apocryphal Kangxi are not prior to Daoguang and even then they are rear , IMO but i am not the expert in general not prior to Guanghu ( kangxi revival blue white)

      apocryohal Yongzheng and Qianlong not prior to Guanghu

      addendum IMO important because people are railroading all the time for considerate amounts of money
      Apocryphal Jiaging Daogung Xianfeng reig marks not before Guanghu period but mostly always early republic

      apocrophal tongzhi and guanghu are after 1960, so to buy guanghu mark porcelain , you can only assess by the glazing and the tonality

      well thats was a lot of babbling

      now something very practical , because the most late 4 character kangxi marks appears an awfull lot

      ALL 4 CHARACTER KANGZHI NIAN ZHI ( remember 4 dots that,s all)marks written inside double cirkels or without double cirkels are fin the siecle
      and most of the time the assessment it is complete bull s...
    9. apostata apostata, 2 months ago
      correction the really late pieces r got an denser glazing
    10. apostata apostata, 2 months ago
      correction fin the siecle OR LATER !!
    11. apostata apostata, 2 months ago
      assessment is right but the dating is wrong according Zhang Liren , an chinese expert its later , the opinions of the experts are stuck ,
