Hi Ping,
I got the feeling that this is Japanese, not Chinese. The decoration looks Japanese to me. I don't know much about Japanese bottoms, though, so I cannot comment on that.
The mark is a "Chenghuan Nianzhi" mark which is among several Ming marks that were extensively copied by Japanese potters.

However this still seems to be antique; perhaps an Edo period item?
