Question
Tiger Cylinder Vase
Tiger Cylinder Vase  
I have this cylinder vase and cannot find out much about it.  From research it appears the top middle mark means Qing but cannot figure out the rest.  I would like to know what the mark means, maybe a relative age of the item , and what any of the other writing means.  I have attached a composite of 3 images of the vase.  Thanks in advance.

Hi, Bill,

The red mark on your cylinder vase means, "Made during the Years of the Qianiong Emperor (1711~1799), Great Qing Dynasty.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qianlong_Emperor)

Our advice for you is be cautious with offers of these merchandises unless you are dealing with reputable vendors/auctioneers.

We attach two similar images from our database for your reference.

Thank you for your question and good luck!
