Can anyone read these Chinese characters that appear on the bottom of a vase. Thank you.
You have several options, if you are using an Android or iPhone Smart phone you can use this free application that can be downloaded and installed on your phone from the site. With the program loaded post the picture that you posted here with the Chinese writing on your vase and Google Googles will translate the text into English.
You can also look for a local Chinese guy or Chinese antique dealer. Looking at the information on Gotheborg Org website marks like that which are written in one horizontal row and not in a museum are probably fake. True Chinese texts read from top to bottom and from right to left.
