old porcelain bowl

by John

I would like to learn about this bowl. It was in the family but no one remembers anything about it. Do the marks have any significance? The picture has wings but I don't know if it is a bird, perhaps a phoenix? Does it have any value other than utilitarian?

Could you provide larger pictures showing details and any defects clearly, please?
Also clear pictures of the bottom, footrim and mark, please.
You could enlarge parts of the decoration, so that strokes are clearly visible, or post larger images to a picture site on the web and post the link here.

It would be better to take the picture in daylight, either outside or near a window. In natural light the colors of the pictures appear closer to those of the real item.
Thank you.
