Chinese spoon and bowl

Do these markings give any indication of age? Both the spoon and the lidded bowl are marked.
Is this Famille Verte export ware?

The short answer is that no Chinese marks are a real indication of age. Their take on putting older marks on pottery is "paying homage" whereas we might say it's a way of tricking the customer.

Best to try the Gotheborg website. They have a very good list of marks and pottery styles.
As SP says, the mark is no indication of age. The colours of these pieces look mid-20thC
