Does anybody here know what this is? I have a few plates like this that has been in the family for a long time. Unfortunately everybody that may have been able to tell me where they're from and how old they are are dead.

This is a Chinese plate from the late Qing dynasty (19th century) with on-glaze enamels.
The mark is apocryphal and for decoration only.
Typically, this type of plate has a decoration with flowers, butterflies and/or birds.
These items were made for export to Europe.
