China from Hong Kong
by: Marietta McDaniel

I purchased a set of china in Hong Kong during the 1980s that is this pattern (except the background of my china is white). What is the name of this pattern? I want to research what my set is worth. Thanks.

Yes, it was a piece that was purchased in the 1960s or maybe 50s. It is a very pretty bowl and whether its valuable or not is actually rather immaterial. I told her to keep it - its an orphan piece - since it looks so nice.

The value of such items may only be in their hand painting. Can be vintage, but not antique.
Such items were all made in the second half of the 20th century, 60s or later, but I cannot tell you exactly when. Could as well be from the last few decades.

This mark can only be from the period described, as China is written in simplified characters, which only came into actual use in the 60s.
