I've recently come in acquisition of some artifacts and I'm looking to learn more about their origin and history. I thought I'd start with the maker's mark. If anyone could help me out with translating this image that would be awesome!

This is a product made in the series of years named 'Xuande' of the Ming Dynasty.（Around 1400）
Since 'Xuande''s were among the 1st period in the history to mark porcelain with marks, and also the first several years when the Chinese people developped an aesthetism for Qinghua （blue-and-white）, their values are normally extremely high and particularly preferred by forgers.
PS. Even forgers in the history loved to fabricate porcelain with 大明宣德.
