CHINESE or JAPANESE ??
« on: September 08, 2007, 09:24:30 AM »
Hi - I have this bowl, and I do not know ??? what you would call the shape, but is it Chinese or Japanese?  Would anyone know the age, value, info on this.  It appears to like enamel pixs on it, and with some high gold on it.  It is about 6 inches high, and wide with the scalloped edges...

If ANYONE  :pst: can help me on this with any information, that would be great.  I have already looked at the Chinese/Japanese sites that you have posted here, but I am still NOT sure :hb: , nor do I know what it says on the bottom....

Help...... :hlp:

Would these kind of colours be known as Famille Rose or perhaps Famille verte?

Thanks..i had already went through those sites, and boy, it sure is hard to just find just the right one.... :tgs: what does Famille Rose or Famille Verte mean?  And would the coating be like enamel, or ??? what ?    Any information most welcomed...

Really :o...others markers used marks similar to Chinese symbols ???  I didn't know that.  Honest, I just thought the chinese used their own symbols ONLY.  GREAT to learn more, and the benefits of this forum  ;)  I wonder if there are more *dummies* like me that never knew that...gosh :blush:  THANKS..

Hi A.R, Yes, maker's used what they thought looked like chinese symbols they made their own up, google fake Chinese pottery marks, you will be surprised.

BTW, Can we please call you by a name you choose? AR, or Antiquerose is a bit impersonal, what about Rose or Anti? :)
p.s. your not a dummy :)

Here are a few examples of Pseudo Chinese seal marks.
http://www.chinacupboard.co.uk/sealgp.htm

Imitation marks were also made by Caughley, Derby, Miles Mason and others.

If it has an orange colour around the unglazed area of the foot rim I would say that it's probably Chinese.

Need clearer pics of the mark, though I can make out what appears to read 'Zhongguo', so definitely Chinese.

I'd say Chinese,the mark that looks like a box with a line down means China(the seal mark is upside down) the bottom left means 'made' and is used in Chinese and Japanese,Keith.
