Might be. Blue & white dishes with this distinctive Daoist Star Gods pattern were produced at Jingdezhen in the same painting style circa the first quarter of the 20th century, which included the last eleven years of the Qing dynasty. Below are some photos of a bowl and plate I have in the pattern. The plate is marked "Zhonghua Zhenpin" (中華珍品), meaning China Republic Treasured Article". Such a mark implies the piece was made in the 1912-1949 period. I also have a saucer in the pattern with the "Last Emperor" Xuantong's (1909-1911) reign mark.
