Yongzheng and Qianlong Porcelain Feet and Reign Marks
A Visual Guide for Authenticating Chinese Porcelain
"Foot rims are the window to the soul" (of porcelain anyway)
As we've pointed out in similar posts books and reference guides on Chinese porcelains are usally
lacking good clear images of the feet and marks. Its true that some do show the reign mark, but they are generally much too small and leave out the bases. To help with this we thought it would be very useful for collectors and dealers to present some illustrated examples.
