Thank you for your evaluation, I bought this from an antique dealer, who buys estates, through the years I have bought several items from him, and your right it was not cheap, but a good price, he deals mainly in furiture and not Chinese antique porcelain, I thought to that it was antique, thanks again.from Stan.

Hi Stan,
Yes, it worked out this time.

The vase ...with what is called a "hundred bat" or "cloud and bat" motif in Chinese;red Guangxu mark. The colored things represent clouds. The decoration band along the base consist of stylized lotus petals. The vase is decorated in the fencai style. I cannot say that I'm an expert for this type of ware, simply because the genuine ones are difficult to find or see.

Anyway, yours looks old. The white glaze looks a bit  white and without major age signs, in these pictures. But I consider this normal for vases of this kind. The decoration itself shows good usage traces.
This sort of vase is frequently found in the catalogs of Chinese auction houses, and yours looks perfectly like those.
Did you get that at auction? If yes, you probably had to pay a fair price for it.
In my view this is Guangxu reign, mark and period.

A Happy New Year, Stan

I'm afraid you misunderstand.
First, you use http://s1309photobucket.com, but there should be a period like here: http://s1309.photobucket.com
But that is not the problem, with Photobucket I can correct this, but I still get only to the door of your account. That is locked to all except the owner, and accessible only by password. Others won't be able to see the pictures inside. Only the closed door of your account, so to say.

To make pictures available you need to copy the full link to the image, which looks like this with an image in my account:
http://i1334.photobucket.com/albums/w657/pepfis/Kraak%20plate/jar1_zps3da34ed9.jpg

If you remove the last part, the file name jar1_zps3da34ed9.jpg from this you can get to the album if there is one. Otherwise you may need to add the link for each picture.

The place to copy the link is called "Links to share this photo", and it is on the right side of the screen.

Please let me know if this is still unclear.

Peter

Hi Stan,

When in Photobucket you need to open the album or picture and select the link to the picture(s) on the right side of the page. What you supplied is  a link to your account, which you can access only via password sign-in, but it is not possible to view the pictures this way.
