Unusual colors. For what market and age

Hi, I was excited to stumble onto this site last evening. I thought I would submit some of my mystery pieces. This sauce plate is approx. 5 1/2 in wide. The footrim is undercut. The painting is of pretty good quality but the colors stump me. The ground color is a gray/purple. As you can see there are greens, blue, orange/red, a bit of yellow/ochre, and turquoise. What market do you think this was for? Turkish? and from what time period? Thanks for any and all information.
