Subject:Help with Yixing Mark on Vase
Posted By: Robert Mon, Sep 11, 2017 IP:

Hoping someone can read the mark on the bottom of this Yixing vase? Maybe the poem or inscription on the back as well?
Thanks so much!!

Bottom mark reads,
震復興 Zhen Fuxing
谷〇  Gu〇 〇 = Hole
Other side: 天口 Tian 口(I can not read 口 )
I checked it on Chinese sites without result, can be
from Taiwan or Hong Kong.
The reading of the text in my rough translation
赫赫明后 There was a bright governor
柔嘉惟則 He could display not only tenderness
克長克君 But he could lead, he could rule
牧守三國 He reigned and defended three realms
This is a famous cliff engraving in Gansu prov.
on the surface of a natural cliff.
The text is much longer and was engraved in AD 171 in clerical script style, which is referred
as a model for calligraphers.
With regards,
