Chinese Porcelain Fish Bowls Planters?

by Cece
(San Francisco)

I am curious if anyone has seen this kind of artwork/scene before and how much would something like this cost? It is 14 inches tall and 16.5 inches in diameter. This has been in the same family's possession for the last 30-35 years but don't know prior to that. It has 3 different village/people scene, 3 orange fish inside, more painting on the rim and a chop. It has a glaze porcelain sheen. Appreciate anyones thoughts. Thanks.

This IS a fish bowl. A planter would have a hole for drainage. Also, the Koi/Goldfish are depicted on the inside suggesting its purpose.

Hello,
From these pictures it looks as if it where made in the second half of the 20th century. The painting and colors can hardly be earlier.
The mark on the bottom appears to be a spurious mark added for decoration only.
