Can anyone here read handwritten calligraphy and can tell me what this says please? It's on a porcelain plaque.

彭澤令 implies 陶淵明 (Tao Yuan-ming) because he has been the 彭澤令 (Pen-ze county magistrate) and loved 菊花 very much。

菊花天 implies the autumn because 菊花 (chrysanthemum flowers) blossom in the fall.

珠山 implies the 江西景德鎮 because it is a famous hill there.

王倚 may be a mimic name of 王琦 who was a famous artist in the porcelain area several decades ago.

The stamp shows 王印, and the two characters have the inverse colors.

Hope to drink (wine) with Tao Yuan-ming in autumn.
