Subject:Dragon Vase
Posted By: Dawn Mon, Mar 05, 2018 IP:

Can someone tell me anything about this vase? Age, meaning etc. I have attached the image of the vase which is about 9" tall and the markings.

The mark reads: Tongzhi 同治 Nian 年 Zhi 製 (Tongzhi Period Made). The emperor Tongzhi reign was from 1862 till 1874.
Since I'm not an expert on Chinese ceramics, I don't know if your vase is from that period or not. Perhaps someone else can give you that data.

This appears to be a printed marked. The overall style, shape, and decoration suggests this is a new piece.
