Chinese Bowl

Chinese experts required!
Please help to to date this this Chinese bowl. I is decorated above and below with ancient Chinese figures. I have tried to pin down the date marks without success, possibly 1920 to 1950's. Perhaps someone could translate the words on the top of the bowl. I am not asking for much!

The mark is for the Xangxi Dynasty 1662 - 1722. However this is one of the most commonly copied marks and your bowl looks new, so late 20thC - now is a more likely date. But worth getting checked out at an auction house if you think it has signs of age.

Thanks for this information Naomi.
There is crazing in the glaze, I thought Chinese Ceramics of the period were so well made and didn't craze in this manner. It is very well made but I agree it seem to be 20th Century. This item came from a house clearance of someone deceased so an accurate history is unknown.

Crazing is artificially created in modern Chinese ceramics to give the impression of age. Whether it's modern or old depends on the size and shape of the crazing.

very true naomim... there most be a sign of age to your bowl for you to suggest it's got some age to it...  but this day's crazing isn't one of them.
