Chinese antiques ??

New postby perby » Tue Apr 10, 2018 2:57 am

Hi all,
I have found the group of people here likely the most diverse, and well rounded on most topics. I hope that there is someone here that can answer the questions I have.
I have a couple of Chinese antiques, I believe several centuries old, but know nothing about them, at least as yet.
Enclosed see a few pictures of them, one I beleive is a tea pot jade body with Tibetan silver metalwork, the other is I believe an incense burner, same jade body and Tibetan silver metalwork.
Also I have the pictures of the marks on each of them, and that is what I am trying to find out, if anyone has a source of the chines marks, or knows how to decipher them ?

I buy and sell a lot of antique items and try to research them as best I can, but am completely unfamiliar with these types of marks.
Any help appreciated,
