Chinese Gold Embossed Hand-Painted Urn with Red Diamond 'made in china' pottery mark with tea cup logo:- Hello! My husband and I acquired this gorgeous hand-painted urn, embossed in gold with raised dots over most of the surface. It is yellow with hues of blue, red, ivory, and fleshy pink. It belonged to his mother, who collected any and all types of ceramic, pottery, porcelain, china, etc. She had great taste in collectibles, and we feel this urn may have some significance and value.


We found it packed away on a top shelf in her storage building after she passed away two years ago, and it has been adorning a shelf in our dining room for all to see ever since. The mark on the bottom is one I have never seen, and I am hoping you will be able to identify it.

It's a red diamond stamp with a tea cup in the top portion, Chinese markings mid-way, and Made in China just under the writing. Looking on the inside of the piece, there is light crazing over the entire surface, which seems to add beauty and character to the piece.

Please let me know if you have any information you can share about this. We eagerly await your response.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi Kelley

Yes this is a nice looking piece. I should imagine, although this is not my area of expertise, that this is a 20th Century mark, so the item might not be old enough to have gained collectible value yet.

I know that, as a rule, older Chinese wares are more valuable than older Japanese wares, but age is an important factor - as is quality (who was it made for etc - the best being Imperial kiln ware).

Have you looked through the Chinese marks on Gotheborg.com? If not, please do so and report back.

2ft. vase
by: bill...New Jersey..USA

I think I have a vase similar to Mr. Reid's, about 2 feet tall, with the red diamond mark. Beautifully painted featuring men and women on horses, and flowers. Looks like gold strip around the top. Is this old, or newer piece, and what is approx. value. Thanks

I have pieces with the exact same mark
by: Chris M

Hello I have an eight-piece tea set in a red satin-covered box bearing the same 'red diamond tea cup made in China' mark. Does anyone have any information willing to share about age/ origin/ approximate value? I'd love to learn more about this hallmark plus so much more and Ill gladly send photos if anyone is interested! I also have a good many other unidentified pieces of vintage glassware, china, and porcelain figurines. Building a decent little collection from which I am willing to sell and I'd sure be grateful for any appraisal tips or anything helpful. Thanks! ~ Chris
