Thanks to all who have responded.  I shall be looking more closely at my Fife origins as a result.
The 'saucer' is 5 inches across and the bowl 3 inches.  The flowers look more like the cinquefoils suggested above, rather than roses, to my non-heraldic eyes.

Could be from a set for Chinese/Japanese tea?

Um yes, could be. I was also thinking possibly a children's tea set.
