    Found this at a “What-Not-Shop” in deep mid state Wisconsin. I always hit this store up when I’m Up North. I came upon this piece by all the other porcelain items and loved it. With a blue and white colors and glazed. The subject matter is what drew me to this piece. A total of 9 different immortals/gods surround the bottom of the piece, each a different immortal and there attributes. In center of the top is the The Old Man of the South Pole and his deer. From the rim of the piece to the foot there are twin blue lines. The very bottom there are 6 characters which I’ve photographed. This bowl measures about 8 1/2” in diameter and stands at about 3” tall. Information would be very helpful.

      krysciobrad, That is so cool, especially the old man of the South Pole with his deer. <3

      I've quit trying to decipher far east logograms, because the learning curve is way too steep for me. Even Google Translate seems still to be wholly inadequate to the task.

      Perhaps somebody else here will give them a whack.

      Here's a lexilogos keyboard for a limited number of Chinese characters if you want to give it a try yourself:

      Hmmm, this source has the roles of the old men of the north and south poles reversed:

      @keramikos , thanks! I’ll give it a try.
    4. keramikos, 1 year ago
      krysciobrad, You're welcome. :-)

      If you want to try Google Translate, you can download the app, and the Chinese logogram set to your smart phone.

      apostata, Very interesting. :-)

      So, faux Qianlong.

      About Qianlong (1736-1795:)


      The Qianlong Emperor e lived for 87 years, making him the longest living emperor of China. He also reigned for 61 years, making him the second-to-longest reigning emperor (his grandfather Kangxi emperor holds first place).


      Here is a sample of a real Qianlong chop, along side a reproduction (scroll down):

      However, this item apparently was made in modern Macao. It's still cool, so long as nobody paid an exorbitant sum for it, thinking it was an antique.
