The mark is not very clear on the bottom, but it looks like a chrysanthemum symbol. The painting of the glaze is really beautiful! i've had this large flowerpot for quite a long time, and never paid attention to it until today when i noticed how beautifully done the glazework is. I'd love to get more info on it.

    I get the impression it's pretty big, but can't tell for sure. Can you give us a ballpark size on it??
