Subject:Translation of incised Chinese mark
Posted By: Kevin Donnelley Mon, May 14, 2018 IP: 69.127.28.77

Dear Members,
I am hoping to learn from one of the experts the meaning of this incised mark which is at the base of a Chinese metal warmer, thank you for looking

Kind regards

Kevin

Top view, the reticulated top, features an outdoor court yard scene w/an arhat riding a mule.
the warmer has 2 handles and appears to be in the auspicious shape of the number 8. there is also a pair of ducks on each end to hold the handles

The mark is of Zhang Mingqi- for comparison, below is a link to a warmer with a very similar mark, however as with many other examples found in a web search, the age character of wear/patina and detailing are very dissimilar to that of the present example
