The text is two lines from a lesser known eight lines (each line) seven characters verse.
In this inscription the first two characters from each line are omitted. (Omitted characters in parenthesis) The two lines sound in my rough translation,
(The scenery) wants to be a part of a muddy drop
(The flagrance of fields) wants to flow like
a cinnabar stream
工 (Encircled) Gong Craftmanship
囍 Xi Double Happiness
Bottom mark,
中國景徳鎮製  China Jingdezhen Product
