I understand pls do this bowl..for all the other dishes individual or sets I'll send new questions
Expert:  Nora replied 1 year ago.
Hi There,
I am not able to decipher the mark on the underside of this bowl.
I will opt-out here and your question will open again to all the experts. If someone knows the answer they will post a response to you here. You do not need to re-list your question and this does not cost you extra.
I will not be able to respond back after opting-out.
I do hope you find the information that you seek.
Sincerely,
Nora

Hi again!
I just found this straggler question, I didn't realize there was a bowl in there until now.
I would like one more photo (clearer) of the bottom mark. Back away another foot and it should come out okay. I can zoom in from here.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Idk if it's upside down lol
Expert:  rarewares replied 1 year ago.
It is but I can work with it. Thanks!
Expert:  rarewares replied 1 year ago.
This is a stemmed tea bowl or soup cup with gingko leaves and the symbol (sloppily written) for longevity. The mark on the bottom reads "China Made Porcelain" with the symbol that looks like a cursive Z being the symbol for porcelain. Probably 1970's. This piece has a value of 35.00.

Thank you where you able to find wooden mask figure questions and help with those?
Expert:  rarewares replied 1 year ago.
Hello,
I was able to read the mask questions and look at the pictures this weekend. Those are not in my realm of experience. I only know almost everything!
You can leave those question there and someone will come along that knows about those. They are unique, so it will take a bit of time. After a period of time, those questions will time-out if no one answers. If no one comes around by the end of today, I might look for some mask experts outside this site to refer you to.
Let's close this one out by clicking the stars. Thanks again, it really is such a pleasure seeing your items and talking with you.
