      HI Guys

      Just one thing to be very careful of is that imperial reign marks are never, ever easy to tell if the piece was indeed made in the reign of referred to as MARK and PERIOD. This is an incredibly difficult area of Chinese ceramics where many modern pieces (19th century) and onwards were direct copies of earliers PERIOD pieces, made to venerate and honour the skill and brilliance of their forefathers. Things such as glaze, design, motifs and even brush strokes need to be taken into consideration in attributing a piece to be mark and period. Jwendell222 is indeed right as the 5 toed Dragon was always indicative of the Emperor and an imperial connection of some sort. This does not necessarily mean that this is indeed an imperial item but a great example none the less
