I'm guessing an older faked Ding Erzhong rather than a more modern one.

I didn't buy it expecting it to be genuine, it came in a lot of bottles and looked like a reasonable earlier (but not early) period bottle from the pictures with just the tree side pictured and the signature to small to decipher.

It looks to be painted by brush rather than bamboo and a pretty rare subject for Ding Erzhong so a strange one to sign off as his work.

Height is 59mm and while I first thought it was crystal I am now thinking glass. Some of the real Ding Erzhong bottles have a slightly splayed footrim but this bottle also flares slightly at the neck which I haven't seen on original ones.

Regards, Adrian.

Dear Adrian,

     If you only saw the side with the tree before you bought it, I can see being confused if it is Middle Period or not.
 But if you saw the human figure before you bought it, for shame.  That is OBVIOUSLY a modern period style. 

   Definitely a candidate for the 'rogues gallery'.
Best,
Joey

Dear Joey,

It's not as modern as the other bottles in the lot  Grin

I have had a run of good luck with bottles recently so it had to end sometime and as I don't spend much when I am chancing it then it costs me very little and, if I ever get around to selling the extra bottles I am not interested in from the lots I buy, there may even be a bit of profit in it.

Mind you I think I had a bit of luck again today with a famile rose bottle from ebay that has arrived.

Regards, Adrian.

Dear Adrian,

That's good [luck with the new bottle].
But I hate these bottles painted in Shandong in the 1980s and signed with master's names.
The only plus is that they don't even try to fake the artist's genuine work,
Best,
Happy Chinese New Year,
Joey
