I have a chinese bowl that belonged to a diseased family member. Its blue and white and has a mark on the bottom which is shown below. I have no information on this bowl and if anyone can share some insight it would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Hello,
The mark is apparently a Jiaqing mark (Qing dynasty).
The decoration is completely foreign and atypical looking to me, although the curly waves on the outside look regular.
To check if this possibly is antique or something newer a number of closeup pictures with good resolution from all around the item would be necessary. This includes the bottom and foot rim. Pictures can also uploaded elsewhere and the link posted here.
