Does anyone recognise this mark found on an 18th century Chinese tea bowl?

Hi Miles.

I posted your mark on another forum. Must be a maker's mark.
Here's the response from Judy:
"The lower character seems to be Xing, also romanized as Hing or Hsing on the list of maker's marks. I think here the meaning is 'enterprise' or 'house.'

It is always helpful to see the entire piece."

Pat.
