Qianlong seal with extra marks beneath it
Hi, my name is Christine, and thanks for taking a look at my post. I have a few questions about a chinese plate with two geishas looking at a censor.
I think it is beautiful, but have a few questions about the marks on the back. I have found a picture online of the Qianlong seal that matches this one identically, the parts inside the squares, but I have never seen any markings below the seal.
Does anyone know what these might mean?
Also, I am confused about part of the seal. It is in the middle row on the top, and in most pieces I have seen there is an "S" shape.
This piece doesn't have that, and I am wondering why? Am I correct in assuming this is a reproduction, or period piece?
I found it at an estate sale. I am an avid rummager, and didn't pay too much for it, but I am just wondering what it is exactly. I like to hunt for the best bargains, and so far have done pretty well.
Thanks to all for the help in identifying these marks!!
