Hi, Can anyone help with information about this mark?

The marking reads:
羊城戊辰年製 Yangcheng, Earth Dragon Year
Yangcheng (City of Rams)is the nickname of Guangzhou (Canton)
Lunar calendar year Earth Dragon(戊辰 Wuchen) corresponds.....1868,1928,1988.
Note, most of the Chinese porcelains are not necessarily from the period they say, they
could be interpreted as simple trade marks.
With regards,

Dear I. Nagy

I would go further and plump for 1928; the object appears to be an injection moulded hollow figurine because we can see the circular hollow to the left of the mark. This form of figurine existed from some time into the 20th century; 1928 would seem a good dating.

Of course, seeing the whole figurine would also be a help.
