Hello all,
Could anyone help me with the period/exact origin of this piece please?

Thank you in advance!

This Chinese mug is a Qianlong piece, late 18th century, I believe. The one on the left pictured below cost US$295.00 plus $29 shipping from the UK in 2011. The damage to yours takes a large toll on value. (It's possible I may have sent this info earlier when I was trying to back out of the post, but if so, there's no extra charge for the better comparative photos I decided to post.)

Your cups below also appear to be Qianlong-era. Some collectors fancy the metal replacement handles and staple repairs. It's possible some of them may be worth as much as US75-$100 on a good day at auction.
