Hello, I picked this up in a small antique shop in the US.
It is about 3" high, glass, enamel with original cover and short spoon.
Could you share thoughts on who painted this? How old?

Thank you, Cheesy

It is falsely signed Ding Erzhong. There are a lot of these falsely signed Ding Erzhong bottles around.

Best guess is that this is about ten years old.

Thank you. What gave it away as a new copy?

One giveaway, I guess should have been the cap. It looks a bit too new. My bad. Is there anything in the painting I should have seen?

What was 'right' about it?
1. Ding Erzhong never painted in the Shandong style bottles with coloured overlay decoration around the neck and base.
2. The bottle, from Shandong, is MODERN.
3. Not painted in his style.

As a rule of thumb if you see a brand new top be suspicious. Also when the bad quality overlay is more in your face then the inside painting,RUN!
