Looks like the old Voc mark for the Dutch East India Company. Is that grey paint on the base? Might be a modern Asian copy of an 18thC bowl

Looks like a reddish earthenware under the paint so not Far Eastern porcelain. I'd expect Delftware to be white earthenware, but without the faux-crackle glaze. The crackle glaze appears to be copying Chinese celadon porcelain. I'm afraid it doesn't look right to me, unless the paint is covering up a porcelain body. But even then, the crazing has been enhanced by rubbing a stain into the cracks, which points to it being a modern piece. Also an original would be hand painted, not transfer printed

Peter it can still be old and a copy. The Chinese have made versions of everything and still do.
The designs in the middle do look like transfers and not hand painted as the original would have.

I tend to agree with Naomi, it looks like a copy and not 18th century. I would expect chips and wear from a wash basin of that age, a functional item that is over 200 years old picks up signs of use 99% of the time. So I think at best it comes from the 1920's but more than likely 1980's-1990's.
