    Please don’t use Simplified Chinese when a text isn’t in Simplified Chinese for [character-identification] questions - it’s really confusing.

  • Is the brand Yiqiantang?? When searching traditional Chinese that is what it comes up with. I believe from your answer the bowl was made/painted in the 1980s.
