Pottery Mark Query - Looks like reverse N letter beneath glazing/pottery Jar:- The story is short. I picked this lovely piece up at a second hand store. I was told by an elderly shopper that it was an old ginger jar. A couple of employees/shoppers stated, "oh you got the vase!" I was and am quite content with its beauty.
It is a pottery piece, looks to possible???
has been hand created?
Blue and white with the Lion??
emblems in three D with ring in nose around top of jar.
Bottom of jar has what appears to be a sea shell mark and in two separate places what appears to be a hand inscribed (elevated underneath the glaze) a backwards letter N???
Also what appears to be a roman numeral IV and at the edge almost like a tooled (knife?) number 5.
Any help on this would be grand!
Best regards and thanks.

Nice story! I like your pot - it is quite beautiful. It is not an area I am that familiar with, but a 6th sense tells my it is a quality object.
