    I’m unsure whether it’s Chinese or Japanese for a start! I can’t find anything similar in searches. Could anyone offer any advice. It’s on the base of a large vase. Thanks in advance.

    It is currently in the process of being valued by an auction house. I’ll post the updates here for anyone who is interested. Thank you all for being so helpful!

    Yes, please do. I'd be interested to know. How tall is it?

    Hi there. For anyone who is interested… It’s a late 19th century vase but it’s “made in honour” of Qing. Nowadays, we would call them fakes but back then they were perfectly reputable, a sign of great respect and made to a very high standard.
    Value £300-£500 at auction.
    (It is broken and glued at the top of the neck)

    Thanks for coming back and updating! It is a nice one and the valuation reflects that. We don't consider that way of marking Chinese wares as fakes, but call them "honorific" marks. A nod of respect to past masters. But as we know, quality is highly variable when it comes to Chinese ceramics. ;)
