What does this mean?

Thank you for contacting Mearto. This is a “qinghua” (blue pattern) Chinese pedestal bowl. Blue and white decoration first became widely used in Chinese porcelain in the 14th century, after the cobalt pigment for the blue began to be imported from Persia.

This piece is in excellent condition. The lack of dynasty mark on the base could indicate that it was produced sometime after the early 1900s.

Auction sales of bowls like these vary based on condition and age. Based on similar items sold at auction, the Fair Market Value of this piece is between $50 and $100.
