Hello,

a couple of years ago I bought a jade bottle with a hunting scene from a  known Hong Kong dealer. Can somebody help to decipher the inscription? Does it contribute to situate and date the bottle?
Thanks in advance
Georges

Dear Georges,

The photo size is too small. Cannot see the carvings after expanded.

Please resize the original photo to 800X600 pixels.

Cheers,
YT

Dear Georges,

Thank you for resizing.

There is no dating rather the three characters points to a name of a painting.
Only character that I can be fully confident to read is the last 图-Painting

Cheers,
YT
