    I just got this for $3 so it doesn't really matter but I was curious of when it was made. It looks old in some places and newer in others so I figured it was a tourist pierce IMG_20201202_155452.jpg IMG_20201202_155519.jpg IMG_20201202_155536.jpg IMG_20201202_155444.jpg

    Turn the mark a quarter clockwise. It's one of the Da Qing Qianlong marks; see above.

    Qianlong (1736-1796)? Or a reproduction of that? Sorry for my ignorance, I usually avoid chinese/japanese stuff because Its something I know nothing about, I just thought this piece was cool with all it's colors. Sucks about the lid tho.

    This is how I learn. Buying stuff and doing research or asking here, then learning how to tell the difference.
