soggyenderman I think this is a #Tongzhi period (1862-74) #porcelain #teacup I admit this time is not my speciality, I grabbed it because I could tell it was old, I liked the design and subtle textures, and the mark looked familiar (I spend too much time on Gotheborg researching porcelain)
Any #antique people or people familiar with #qingdynasty porcelain marks want to confirm or deny my theory?

  •   soggyenderman @gong_fu_panda me too, and they are beautiful! I hope I am right, I love things that are old, and finding out when they are from makes me so happy. Leftover from my dreams of being an archaeologist as a kid please remind me once I move to show you the oldest thing in my collection, it might be a Chinese imari porcelain gaiwan, pie at very least the most skilled reproduction I have run into! I think you might enjoy having a look at it 9h

  •   omgsrslyppl That is incredible! Whoa. Where do you find these awesome tea wares? 55min
  •   kennyleong Thanks @boychik2989 ! It's hard to say by looking at a picture, and I'm not very familiar with Qing porcelain, but I think there's no doubt this is old. As to how old, I'm not very certain. As soggyenderman pointed out, the seal says 同治年製 (made in the year/rule of Tongzhi), and this type of red coral glaze (珊瑚釉) appears to be somewhat common in the late Qing / early Republic era. Now the colours and style of the paints used for the sword and flower/leaves actually do look like the 粉彩 (fencai) of the Republic era, so I'd be more conservative and place this as late Qing / early Republic. As for the seal, it's a 寄託款 ("borrowed" from an earlier period). Happy to hear everyone's thoughts. 52min

Picture taken at one of the five bridges crossing the river. If you look carefully, you can find some small fishes in the water.

emskithenomad The Jade Buddha Temple in Shanghai, China.
The original Buddhist temple was built in 1882 to keep two jade Buddha statues which had been brought from Burma by a monk named Huigen. Unfortunately the temple was destroyed during the revolution that overthrew the Qing Dynasty, however the statues were saved and a new temple was built on the present site in 1928 and was named the Jade Buddha Temple.
