All,

Wishing you a Happy Chinese New Year, “Year of the Metal Ox".


 

If anyone sees an artist name on in the script, please let me know.  I believe it is dated 1991.   

"Gong Xi Fa Cai", for I only know Mandarin.   Grin

Charll,

Thanks for the New Year greetings ! The Chinese are still in the midst
of the 12-day New Year period ! Because of Covid 19, the usual celebrative
mood is simply not there ! I don't know if Sam in Hong Kong has the same
feeling.

From your posted photo, I cannot discipher the two characters which are the
names of the artist. Maye you can retake a picture around the end of the
inscription.

Charll

Charll,

The script was too cursive for me to
interpret.

Hi Charll

You are right. The bottle was dated spriing 1991 and painted by a relatively unknown artist, Mo Fang (墨芳).

For your reference.

Richard and Inn Bok,

Thanks for the help.  Guys, we are going to have to figure out a way in which I can return the help in kind.  Your contributions are very much appreciated.     

Richard, that was the last bit of information I needed to finish up my description of this bottle. Thanks again.
