Thinks this is real kangxi period porcelain?

This type of pictorial mark is usually appearing on some Kangxi items only. I do not think it would appear on later Qing items. This is not export porcelain. Due to its small size it is most likely a liquor cup.

Comment:
Please note that the fact that the double ring is so near the foot rim would be suspicious if there is a larger base, but as it is so small it should be all right with this item.
(Normally, a ring so near the foot rim would point to a late Ming item, which however would not have this type of mark.)
