Hi,
The mark is a spurious Ming mark, but the marks of that period were never written this way. It is probably only for decoration.

However, the plate itself looks as if it could be Qing dynasty.
As these pictures don't allow to see details clearly. It is suggested that you either upload closeup pictures from three or four different areas on the decoration, or that you upload high resolution pictures to a website like Photobucket, etc. and post the link(s) here.
