Hi I have had this for years, and would love to know where it's from. There is a mark at the bottom, is anyone able to tell me anything about the bowl and it's origins from this? I think I have attached the image above now. sorry if it not very good quality and more apologies if it is upside down or sideways!! Does anyone have any idea what it means?

1. Turn it upside down.
2. Rub it onto a white sheet of paper with black ink, and make sure the whole thing is being rubbed, leaving nothing out. Many times when people do rubbings, they leave things out, and so it's even more difficult to decipher what's there.
Doing those two things above will great help with reading the seal properly. Since it's in ancient Chinese writing, it would help if the above were done properly.
