This is a faux Qianlong dynasty CHINESE mark. The Qianlong dynasty was from 1796 to 1820, but this faux mark was put on items made in Macau in the 1970's and 1980's with the words MADE IN MACAU underneath. This bowl is a recent (70's 80's) reproduction piece that was sold in the US. These bowls typically are worth $10 to $20.00.
