Can you tell me what I found?

These are two images of the same stamp that is on the bottom of each ceramic dish that is part of a serving susan. These seven bowls or dishes are quite ornate, appear to be old, hand painted with gold leaf, and came in a wooden lazy susan. These were discovered and retrieved from an estate sale.

Can someone translate these images? I have been told it is written in ancient Chinese, and may come from the Qainlong Dynasty. Any information I can get on this would be helpful ... and thanks in advance for any help you may provide.

Hi, I think that it says: 大清乾隆年製

which basically translates as Great Qing Qianlong Year Made

Meaning that they were made sometime during the reign of Emperor Qianlong (1735-1996) in the Qing Dynasty.

here is a page I found that goes into more detail about the seal.

I think that you should talk to an expert in the subject by contacting a local dealer to examine them better as there is always the likelihoods it they could be a fakes. Hopefully not thou! smiling smiley
