Zentner Collection: Antique Japanese Tansu, Asian Works of Art
Chinese antique mixed set of 13 pieces of porcelain bird feeder parts for a bird cage. Six of the color glazed pieces have the same 4 character mark on the bottom, a combination of Qinglong and Longqing marks. These pieces are most likely from the early 20th century. The blue and white glazed pieces are mostly 19th century and include one with a leaf mark on the bottom. The Kangxi (1662-1722) artemisia leaf mark was used during the early Qing dynasty up to the early 1680's when the use of reign marks was restricted in various ways. During this period a number of different marks came into use including this leaf which can be considered a period marking though not imperial.

Dimensions range from 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" (largest) to 1 1/2" (smallest)
