Please help with the meaning of seal calligraphy writing on the following clay board.

I'll give a slightly different transcription, and a rough translation:

賞賜

Bestowal


茲甲𦥔(申)𣪫(殿)恩澤四方⿰辵告(造)

福百x*修𡳿(之)卽𠦪請特

賜甲𦥔𣪫x窑⿹⿰二⿱气人瓦(瓷)器甁

盌(碗)琖𪏰(香)鑪(爐)尊洗等三百

六十九件供甲𦥔𣪫亯(享)

用㠯(以 > 已)

*As @水巷孑蠻 pointed out, this is probably 「姓」.

The Jiǎshēn Palace graces our lands, bringing happiness and fortune to the people; its embellishment, prompted by a call to Royal Favours, gifting the palace with (...), kilned ceramic vessels, bowls, wine cups, incense burners, and wash basins, amounting to 369 items. These are provided to the Palace for the enjoyment [of its residents].


示皇恩浩蕩

Notice of the vast generosity of Imperial Favours


甲𦥔𣪫

Jiǎshēn Palace

Jiǎshēn Palace is presumably the name of the palace of the mother of Emperor Gāozōng of Sòng. The palace gained this name, reflecting the day of Jiǎshēn, when Gāozōng held a birthday ceremony for his mother. See e.g. 瓷器有「甲申殿」落款嗎?它又是什麼意思?又代表著什麼? - 壹讀.

Note: I cannot find the text that you've presented anywhere - this is probably a complete fake.

    do you think that it’s a counterfeit / forgery, pretending to be an antique? – 水巷孑蠻 Jan 27 at 11:51
  • I thought it was a fake, a little reference about 甲申 殿 and some weird idiomatic sentences thank you – C Drihardjanto Jan 27 at 14:30

    @水巷孑蠻 I don't even know what it's supposed to be a forgery of...the text is incomplete. Maybe it's targeted towards people who can't read seal characters. – dROOOze Jan 27 at 16:03

    imo, the text is unacceptable, pretending a “notice / record” in literary chinese. secondly, using clay / stone board for records is, un-chinese. 😹 – 水巷孑蠻 Jan 27 at 16:16

    @CDrihardjanto maybe this will help a bit more. – dROOOze Jan 27 at 17:36

the top two characters are: “賞賜” (read from right to left), which means rewarded

reading from the right, top to bottom, my initial reading is:

茲甲申殿恩澤四方造

福百姓修之xxxx

賜甲申殿xx瓷器瓶

x琖香爐尊洗等三百

六十九件x甲申殿合

用以

示皇恩浩蕩

the last three characters are:

“甲申殿”

a funny clay board :)
