This photo shows a lighter yellow than the other photos you sent, this is a much better photo, it looks authentic to me and they did use blue marks as well, I think a hands on inspection would be needed to authenticate.

If you mean that Meander pattern, it is done in red.

Hi Kardinalisimo, I just found a bowl on Christies past lots sold for over $5500 and the design is very similar to yours, at the top, the bottom of the bowl is the right color yellow but at the top the design was drawn in red, when fired the iron red color bled a little into the yellow color making a little darker, I can't tell if yours was drawn in red, looks like it might me. here is the photo, from Christies.

Yes it would be a much brighter yellow, not a dirty dark yellow like yours, this color is a much later yellow in my opinion.

Stan,
What is the right yellow for the period. More bright?

Hi kardinalisimo, the yellow is the wrong color for Guangxu period, I think that this is a later copy, mid to late 20th century.

Are they from the period or later? Is it normal to have the marks in blue. They feature the same decoration but the marks are painted slightly different.
