Hello John,
Your ogee-form piece is an example of 19th century "Kitchen Qing" porcelain that's often called a "Farmer's Hat Bowl." I believe they were made on both sides of 1850. Here are images of one of mine in a slightly different version of your pattern. It has a symbolic mark on the base that looks like it may be stylized blades of grass. The motif in the cavetto is a rabbit. The link is a to a web outlet with photos and descriptions of other such bowls that appear to be closer pattern matches to yours.
