Subject:Re: Japanese Bowl with Hidden decoration

Your bowl shown with the mark is a contemporary Chinese product, with a molded character for 'Official' (Guan - 官) on the base. See the link for a forum discussion of a similar piece last year, including another link to information on these wares from gotheborg.com. If the bowl with butterflies has similar decoration, called 'Anhuar' (暗花兒 - Chinese term for hidden motifs in porcelain, also 'anhua'), it probably is Chinese as well.
