Hello Peter,
This bowl had been in my collection for few years. My research said it was Ming's. As always I need you and other expert opinion. Dimension is 28 cm diameter and 14 cm high. Thank you.

Hi Peter, Hi Tim,
Thank you both for your positive feedback. At first after I read Peter info (very fast response) I think my bowl date to jiajing, thank for Tim to correct me. Actually I have a problem about gloss which I will present next post. I will now prepare my material. thank you.

Best wishes,

Ming Bowl

Looks right for a Ming bowl. The blue is right too though of the
darker variety. Is this a shipwreck piece? The glaze has lost much
of its gloss. Ming wares are usually pretty glossy for non-wreck
pieces. I feel with the crane motif, gritty foot rim and the dark cobalt blue used this is a Wanli or transitional piece.

Appears indeed to be Ming. The foot rim and mark indicate that it could be from the mid-Ming period.
The main picture appears to be a "duanhe", a crane in a circle.
The mark is a "Fugui Jiaqi" mark.
