    I have no idea what this might be worth or what country it originated from.
    It appears to be an antique, possibly made in Hong Kong.

      I really do not know what I have. I found it at an estate sale.

      Not an antique and definitely made in Hong Kong, as the label says.

      "The Overjoy Porcelain Factory is a 30-minute train ride out of central Hong Kong to the New Territories. Even after you've located the building, finding the showroom is like wandering in a maze. We wished we had brought cookies to leave a trail of crumbs, as Hansel and Gretel did to find their way back out of the forest. We finally found the showroom in the back of the building on the second floor.

      Overjoy factory owner Josephine Ku speaks excellent English. The company has been in business for 25 years, shipping custom china to customers in Europe, the United States, Canada and other Asian countries. At the time we visited, it was preparing a magnificent black-and-gold set for a Malaysian diplomat.

      Ku suggests that you bring a paper drawing or photograph of what you want, along with a color sample. The company will then make up a sample dish for your approval, before it makes the whole set. It normally takes a week to make the sample, however Ku says the company will do its best to accommodate your travel schedule and prepare your sample before you leave Hong Kong.

      Although the sample will be executed at the Hong Kong showroom, the set itself will be made in mainland China, where labor is cheaper. Colors used at the Overjoy Porcelain Factory are lead-free and conform to USDA standards."
