    Been a while since I used this site, to be honest I had forgotten about it !!! Must be old ag

    Porcelain bowl, Xianfeng marks in red, iron oxide firing spots, Signed could be the artist or maker?

    2 things, I know the reign marks and one other photo are upside down, they are fine on my iPad then then when I upload they flip over!!!

    So the question is, is it genuine, please give me a shout if you have an opinion, cheers

      peter16, Cool. :-)

      Upside down or no, Google Translate on my phone rendered part of it as "Made into female Qing" (Zhi Cheng nu quing). I flipped it 180, and then part of it was rendered as "Daqingcheng" (Zhi cheng da qing cheng).

      Without the accent marks, that is. I didn't feel like emailing myself, etctera.

      Perhaps somebody else here more knowledgeable will chime in about authenticity.

      As to your picture having been turned upside down from your iPad: CW S&T software doesn't play well with all photo sources. If you have a Windows box, save the picture using that. You don't really have to change it in anyway other than for the file properties to reflect Windows.

      Hello keramikos, I’ve almost given up on translation, it seems everyone can find a different meaning even with the same characters, who knows, you could be absolutely correct, I admire your efforts, thank you

      peter16, About the only thing I've learned about Chinese logograms besides that there are standard characters and seal characters is how very little I know, and that Google Translate is a long way from accurate.

      time and periode !!!! xianfeng cup what they call an european hunting cup or an revival hunting cup ( from the quianlong period ) , this is genuine and extremely rare, typical famille vert like style, balanced composition , good condition , this will do money, because this is time AND period
