Chinese Tea Bowl? Empty Chinese Tea Bowl?

Would like to know the age of this little tea bowl, it is small and has a bluish tint, it is very opaque too, has a really nice smooth feel very tactile. I have owned it for around 40 years it has no marks underneath

Thank you both, I’ve have lots of bits that I’ve had for years and was having a clear out so thought I’d find out what they are before I give to charity or keep. This is a great site and wish I had checked years ago before giving my Chinese collection to charity

I've deleted the duplicates. The blue tint in the glaze, and style of decoration points to 18thC English porcelain, but I'm not familiar with the factories

Could be. the border design round the rim is the usual giveaway.
Check against other examples.

Going by the cross pattern inside the top bowl rim and underglaze blue Liverpool is a good shout.

Oh thank you Potterymad, it does look similar, I didn’t realise it was so old as it’s always looked like it was made yesterday. I think I will keep it 😅

Lot of early Bow, Liverpool, Lowestoft, Plymouth, Worcester etc were unmarked so very hard to pin point to the exact factory. I confident it's Liverpool but who knows, I dare say you could find an blue & white expert online who would ID the bowl, even free or for a small fee. Anyway a lovely piece to have Excellent

Thank you everyone, at least I know more about it, I’ve always liked it and held on to it when getting rid of stuff before so maybe instinct kicked in.
