Help identifying Chinese bowl

by Jimmy A.
(Kirkland, WA)

Hello! We are having a tough time identifying this Chinese bowl. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
It measures 9" in diameter and stands about 3-3/4" tall.
There is also some gold paint around the rim and on other parts of the design.
Thank you!

famille rose
by: peter

Hello,
This is a famille rose bowl. From the pictures it looks as if it might be printed (newer).
If the surface is smooth and even, then it probably is. If you can feel/see the uneven enamel, then it likely is hand painted.

There is a spurious Qianlong mark, and below that it says Made in Macao.
All in all probably second half of 20th century.
