This is a late-20th century or subsequent dish of a transfer-decorated type that may have been produced by ornamentation factories in Hong Kong or Taiwan. Macao also makes transfer wares, as does Mainland China, but I've never seen any attributed to Macao with an apocryphal Daoguang reign mark resembling the one found on the bottom of this dish. In the late 20th century I recall seeing similar wares in restaurants around Hong Kong and Taiwan in porcelain and melamine plastic versions, but in those days I was more interested in the food in them than the base-marks they might have borne.
