    The Gotheborg site is wonderful, but sometimes it confuses me - Chinese marks are awfully hard for me to identify. This lidded ginger jar is about 12 1/2" tall and there are chips around the lid edge.

    I think I found the mark on Gotheborg listed as Mark 732 Kangxi Nian Zhi, c. 1900.

    Can someone tell me what Kangxi Nian Zhi means? And if I try to sell this piece, what key words would you put in the title so that it's clear this isn't from the early Kangxi period?

    Thank you for your help!

    You want to use terms like "honorific" for the mark to make as clear as you can that the item was not made during the period.

    This is often called "Kangxi revival"... The mark means "Made during the Kangxi Reign", but as Bakersgma said, it is honorific or also called "apocryphal"...
