Why is the 'Made in China' stamp under a chinese porcelain vase in reverse?

It starts with the letter A and ends with the letter M on two lines within a square. The two vases appear to be hand-painted. The mark is right under the bottom line of the square.

The 'Made in China' stamp under a Chinese porcelain vase may be in reverse because it is not authentic. On the other hand, the reversal of the stamp may have been a factory error made during mass production.

If the vases are really hand-painted, then the Chinese artist may not have known he was copying the English letters and words in the wrong order. Chinese is not read left to right like English is, and the letters of our alphabet may have been meaningless to the artist. Imagine if you had to copy a sentence in Chinese. Would you know which was the beginning and which was the end? I sure wouldn't!
