Well here is a bowl that I have had for over 10 years and I still don't know anything about it. I've always thought that it was for the remnants of tea, like a slops bowl, mainly due to the size and the staining to some of the white porcelain internally. Date wise I was thinking maybe 19th century, purely by the decoration, the wear to the inside and the wear to the rim on the base, but that is just an uneducated guess really as I just don't know enough about these things. It is quite thick porcelain and relatively heavy, not dissimilar to a stoneware soup bowl. It is 15.5cm wide and 6.5cm tall. The mark I have not got a clue.
Anything you can tell me would be great.
