I'm trying to find out something about this bowl left to me by my late mother. The Bowl is 15cm across and 7cm deep. Any help would be very gratefully received.

Many thanks, how recent would it be

if it was a fake, I was with my mother when she bought it in 1974. It certainly looks genuine

In these picture it looks like a more recent imitation of Chinese export porcelain. There is a spurious Kangxi mark. Not sure if it could be Japanese, but from these pictures it looks as if it were printed. Closeups of decoration (partial) would be needed to confirm this impression.
