Chinese made decorated metal piece. Looking to identify the markings on bot

Post by Pottery101Web on December 17th 2012, 6:32 pm

Hey all,

I've had so much help on this forum, I am absolutely so grateful for everyones kindness.

This one of the last few pieces I found. Am interested if anyone knows what the markings on the bottom are.
This may just be a Chinese reproduction piece but I'd really like to make sure before I go letting it go!

Thanks

I think that the mark that says CHINA says it all.

The six character marks on the base would have been very clear on an original incense burner and indicate the reign in which it was made and possibly the maker as well. These would most likely have been copied over the years but still have the original clear marks, not to deceive but to pay homage to the original.

Your burner is a poor recent copy for export and is worth the scrap value and nothing more. Still perfect for the purpose that it was made for though.
