This apocryphal stamp or decal mark of "Made during the Qianlong Reign" (Qian long nian zhi - 乾隆年製) resembles one on faux Rose Medallion transfer wares decorated at the Wa Lee Company in Hong Kong around 1960 and discussed on the website gotheborg.com. It may be that this differently enameled and somewhat more carefully pasted up bowl dates more toward the end of the third quarter of the 20th century or post-Cultural Revolution era.
