Vase with signature

I've been trying to find some information about the vase in the attached photos. Can you tell me anything about the type of vase that it is, and what the signature with the 3 dots means?


Hua Shan - a well known mountain

Your vase is a modern Chinese porcelain piece.

The two characters are " Hua Shan" where "Shan" = mountain. "Hua Shan" is actually a well known mountain in Shaanxi Province, renown for its beautiful pine trees and breath taking scenery. Here "Hua Shan" are most probably used as a brand or factory name.

The three dots finally, are most probably some kiln grit that just happened to stuck there :-)

Sincerely,
Jan-Erik Nilsson
