    White "Guan mark" porcelain with hidden designs

    At auction last week I purchased two white vases that have a hidden design visible from the inside of the vase when held to the light, but invisible when viewed from the outside of the vase. The porcelain is very thin and delicate.

    A label on the vases indicated that they were 19th century, "Hidden Design" vases, but said no more.

    Any ideas?


    A recent ware

    Regarding your hidden design vases I think they are rather recent.

    The pointed finial on the lid is typical for late 20th century porcelain even if I can't completely rule out the late 19th century as a possibly date.

    The mark on the base says "Guan" which means "Imperial".

    Several of these items have surfaced recently so there is a reason to think they are all of a recent make intended for the gift or souvenir market.
