Below the "CHINA" stamp, your bowl bears a six-character seal script mark of "Made during the Jiaqing reign of the Great Qing dynasty" (Da qing jia qing nian zhi), which is shown upside down. The bowl's attractive decoration of women minding children at play in a garden on a turquoise ground is rendered in a figural style seen in the early Republic period (1912-49). Compare the treatment of the figures shown on the pedestal dish in images downloaded below.
