    Hello there, I was wondering if anyone could read the mark on the base to help me identify its manufacturer? Thank you

      Your bowl is mille fleurs, aka thousand flowers, famille noire (black background) style.


      Sure someone will be able to help with the mark.

      Thank you both for your help! I've heard of famille rose but not famille noire before, & thank you for identifying the pattern that's also very helpful! I'm not really good when it comes to Asian ceramics but it does seem to have a bit more quality than the bits and bobs I've come across in the past!& thanks for that I shall have to search the net to see if I can find a list of factories! Thanks again to you both I really appreciate it,it's always great to learn more!

      This is a very comprehensive site with many, many samples of different marks and other information about places and factories where items were made. I hope it might be of some use.
