No idea what it depicts. For a Bactrian camel the humps would be much too low, the tail seems wrong and what are the hairs below the mouth? A beard? The legs and tail, on the other hand would be wrong for a horse or mule.

I was not sure to be honest, but the pigment of blue is definitely of Ming.

What do you think the bowl was depicting? I've never seen a camel on a bowl before.

7" in diameter at the top and almost 3" in diameter at the base. It is approximately 2.75" deep. The bowl weighs approximately 1 pound, 4 ounces.

Late Ming. Were you thinking of Dehua because of the blue pigment?
I was, but not sure as the high rim shape and mark are not typical for Dehua kiln.

Hi all

what do you guys think?

What do you think the decorations saying? It looks to be a camel or a horse transporting something on the bowl.  I believe this is late Ming? From the colors? Where do you think this was made?
