None of the pictures is close enough to see if it is handpainted or transfer printed. The color tone gives the impression of European porcelain. While it may be the willow pattern, the proportions look different from those on Chinese porcelain. This could be later Chinoiserie from Europe. It has a westernized style of decoration
