Chinese Antique Hallmark Id on small cups

Postby peetcg » Fri Mar 28, 2014 5:21 am

Qiu Tian Bao Lao of Shanghai and Lao Tia Bao of Tientsin have been suggested by unknown sources as hallmark translation....your opinion appreciated.
my camera is a bit off- my shooting as well. Will try another piece with a clearer mark if found.
All pieces have the exterior circle stamped
Thank you indubitably!

Welcome to the Forum.

It is very difficult to see all of the marks in the photos provided.

There appears to be a single-character mark followed by a string of 3 (or possibly 4) characters, the second and third of which are:

天寳 Tian Bao

Please take a photo with a camera's macro function and crop the photo to enlarge the marks. With a better photo, a positive ID should be possible.

Regards
DR
