This exact red close together lettered CHINA stamp is depicted in gotheborg records. This statue could be older maybe Late 1800's just received the china stamp once at export or during travel we are not sure of the exact reading of the impressed mark but it is well pressed for sure. We have dated this statue in respects to the aged porcelain, coloration, attributes found on old make pieces and the obvious CHINA mark.
Looking closer at this vessel life pours from within a plant can be seen growing or sprouting up from its top as done naturally from the ground even more longevity wow.
