    this came up at an auction a few weeks ago. I passed on it but I'm still not sure if maybe this was the real deal. 22324225_IMG7524.jpg 74664603_IMG7520.jpg 47336992_IMG7507.jpg 99663474_IMG7510.jpg 17834417_IMG7511.jpg

    How is it etched?

    JMHO, with that painted on staining on the bottom and the rim, I think very new trying to look old.

    You didn't miss out, this is certainly a very modern one, possibly almost new.

    oh yeah that stuff on the bottom. I thought they were abrasions like someone had deliberately aged it so it looked suspect.

    As above. Deliberate aging to bottom is red flag.

    I'd say it's not a deliberate fake; it's new not trying too hard to fool anyone but doing it anyway by accident.

    Someone went to the cost and trouble of smearing brown paint on bottom.

    But brown paint not rubbed off is just meant to look like, not look exactly like. In my opinion anyway. But then I grew up with some in the house.

    Fake Qian Long chop. The brown on the bottom is faking old, commonly used to "age" pieces.

    Intended to deceive, no excuses, plain fake.;) The 'dirt' isn't paint, it washes off.
