Subject:Small bowl
Posted By: Adidas Sun, Feb 17, 2019 IP:

I purchased this item in pingyao, china. It looks like a tiney bowl for noodles, including a bowl, top and a bottom plate. Wanted to know some information on it and if its antique? If so from what time approximately, thanks !!

Your tea cup would appear to be mark and period for the GuangXu period 光緒 (1875-1908). The pattern is named after the Chinese vegetable, but I can't remember which one specifically at the moment.

The cups called a 'taiwan'.

Here, from Wikipedia:- A gaiwan (/ˈɡaɪwɒn/) or zhong is a Chinese lidded bowl without handle used for the infusion of tea leaves and the consumption of tea. It was invented during the Ming dynasty. It consists of a bowl, a lid, and a saucer.

As Mark has noted, this looks to be a contemporary Chinese noodle bowl and stand with faux Guangxu base-mark and makeover of the late 19th-early 20th century "Cabbage & Moth", AKA "Cabbage & Butterfly", AKA "Pak Choy" motif. Here are images of some pieces dating to circa 1920. The larger bowl has a "Made in China" base-mark, and the handled cup and tray are unmarked.
