chinese dish identification needed

by Hayley Jones

Please could anybody give me some help in identifying this small dish ? Its about 5 inches wide by 2 inches across. It has peaches on it and I believe finger lemon or buddha finger flowers on. It is gilded around the edge but with wear to the gilding and there is pitting on the bottom underside, There is no makers mark. Any help gratefully appreciated.

The lid shows a Chinese peach on the right and on the left a Buddha's hand fruit (Citrus medica), as it is called in Chinese.

The pictures are slightly blurred. Better pictures of the decoration and bottom would be needed to evaluate age. Any blemishes should be clearly visible.
