Dear Luke,

I have same feeling as you, the motif does not feel chinese to me as well, it could be japanese origin, but very attractive item indeed.

Cheers!

Dear Giovanni and Rube,

Thanks for your inputs!! and Yes Giovanni, you are absolutely correct on the motif,:)

And Dear Rube, good guessing on Ma shaoxuan, and the calligraphy does have some similarity with Ma shaoxuan's or more specifically, the calligraphy is closer to Ma shaoxian's.

However the painting style is a little off Ma family's.

I will have some example shared later.

Best,

Steven

I am sharing the bottle on Joey's  request.Smiley

Would like to hear any comments from you.Smiley

To me, I think its a middle period bottle, but I don't have much clue who painted the bottle altho I have some candidates on my mind.

Please join the discusses if you can .

Cheers!

Hi Thomas,

Welcome to the Forum! and Thanks you for sharing the bottle.

The bottle doesn't look like LiuQiao in my opinion, actually that your bottle is signed with "Chang bai shan Ren"

Chang Bai shanren is a art name, I assume that he is a shandong artist .

Best,

Dear Rube,

Thank you for sharing such interesting piece.

My first impression is that bottle could be Japanese in origin because of the design. Sorry that I can't have much experience of dating the bottle but it does look old to me.

According to the painting style and shape of the bottle, the bottle should be painted in 2002 instead of 1972. Its well painted, but it could be a student bottle at that time.

Best,

Thanks for sharing Adrian!

It seems that you have become an expert on YYT, you are right, both are YYT's examples.
I am with Joey on the bottle shape, but the brush strokes point to YYT, and  the seal on the bottle is a Yu tian seal.

Congratulations!

Thanks for sharing additional photos Kaja!

One of the photo was too big size , so I went ahead and resized if for you. Please be sure resize the file dimension no more than 1000pixel  wide, so that the photo is fit the screen properly.

I agree with Charll and Pin on the comments of the bottle, I also not eligible to give you a very specific date range, but will give it a try,  1880-1940 is my guess.

Best,

Steven

Thanks for sharing, Kaja

It looks like a very nice hair crystal to me, very nice shape, and hairs are very attractive as well.

If you don't mind, I would love to see a couple of more photos of the mouth of the bottle and the bottom too.

Cheers.

Thanks for joining the Forum, and sharing with us.

Would you mind introduce yourself a little bit over here, so the other members can address your name correctly.

Regarding the bottle, this is a pretty nice modern glass overlay. The price range of modern glass bottle can be $50-$200 depends on the qualities.

Cheers,
