Beautiful dish with lotus flower and ruyi pattern along the rim.

The mark is a "Yawan Zhencang" mark. The mark appears mainly on 20th century porcelain. I don't know if it is first half or later. It is hardly Qing dynasty as the mark apparently was made with a rubber stamp in blue, which is rare for earlier wares. Rubber stamp marks of the 19th century were usually in red.
