    Off topic I need help please with a translation completely unrelated to watches?

    Hello Chinese watch forum. I spend pretty much all my time in Vintage Watches and Soviet as well. I dont even own a Chinese watch or a movement (to my knowledge) In the past members of the Soviet forum have been kind enough to translate words written in the Cyrillic alphabet. I am hoping for the kindness from a member of the Chinese Watch forum. I am an inveterate collector of all sorts of things, not only watches. In this case its a Xixing Zisha Teapot with a chop mark on the bottom. Im going to post a picture of the little teapot and a another of the mark ( which in my ignorance could be upside down or sideways ) and hope for the best. Moderators: if this is inappropriate please feel free to take the post down. In any case Thanks in advance. Hopefully, P&P

    I think Theo is joking. While I only know modern Chinese characters, that doesn't look to me like the ancient form of 中国制造. It's most likely the name of the maker (three characters) with 制 (Made By), but I'll have to ask my parents to be sure.

    Yeah, it might be some maker's name, like Danfried suggested. I asked my wife and her parents and they don't seem to be able to make sense of it. Good luck! :)

    Thanks one and all. After a bit it did occur to me that Theo was fooling around, which is why Im back again, to see if there was any more input. I guess Ill need luck if people who can read Chinese characters cant make sense of it beyond 'Made by'. Anyone else want to chime in? Once again, Thanks, P&P

    You can try Google Translate app on your mobile phone.

    I'm using it extensively, currently I'm taking a foreign language class. It's using the camera for the translation.

    You can just point the camera, and the translation done in real time. It's an augmented reality apps.

    I hope it helps.

    Thanks to both of you with the translation online link and demo. I had no idea either existed. And both have a multitude of uses obviously.Regards, P&P
