This is a printed mark and relatively new.

It looks to me like paint under a microscope as I have studied all types of prints vs painted objects. So is it a painted over print?

Since leaving my first comment, I spotted a vase in a shop with decoration like what's on your dish. I took a closer look at it to see if it had the same mark as your dish and the other vase I'd seen in the forum at the same time. It indeed did have the same mark, as well as a paper label identifying it as made in Macao, a locale known for transfer-decorated but not hand-painted porcelain. I can't see anything about the mark or the rest of the decoration on your dish to suggest hand painting on either side, unless some of the transfer printed elements in the motif might have some color washes that were added by hand.

Late 20th century or subsequent Chinese transfer-decorated dish with apocryphal seal script base mark of 'Made in the Qianlong Reign of the Great Qing Dynasty'. Also see similar mark on item at link.

Best regards,
