Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I would love to help.

The next step would be for me to see pictures of the bowl and any marks on the bottom.

Use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures (one at a time with a description works best) and I will be able to complete my answer, thank you!

This is a bowl that was made in Japan in the 1970's and 80's intended to look like Quimper pottery from France. Most call it Quimper-style because it is a reproduction piece. This bowl has a value of $20.00.

I was born in 69 so I remember the bow as long as I can remember my mother having it she said her grandmother gave it to her which could not be the case but thank you so much
Expert:  rarewares replied 8 months ago.

You are welcome. The earliest it could have been made is the late 50's. Anything made in japan in the 1945-to 1952 period had to have MADE IN OCCUPIED JAPAN as the mark by law because the US was the occupying force in Japan at that time. This type of ware was not created before WWII in Japan.
