This is a 20th-century Chinese famille rose 8" bowl likely made in Macao

in the 1950's through 1960's. The bottom tells most of the story with

a clean rim. The 1840's famille rose bowls have some grit and almost an orange tinged

rough rim on the base and some hints of grit within the porcelain. The painting on this bowl is also indicative of mid-century pieces with a black cartouche that has a thicker line than earlier pieces. The value of this bowl is $75 to $100 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are (local), (local),,,,,, eBay and (local).
You can also go to or and search their directory for an
auction house near you and consign to them.
