The artist/manufacturer would want to express 景徳鎮 for the middle line, but the second kanji seems wrong.

The object is apparently Chinese. Each line is read from right to left. The first line says 江西 (Jiangxi), which is a province of China. The second line says 景德鎮 (Jingdezhen), which is a city in Jiangxi province, known as the porcelain capital (Jingdezhen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia I am not sure about the third line, but it is almost certainly the name of the person or studio which created the work. A person skilled at reading Chinese should be able to decipher the third line.

Last line looks like 各1食.
I don't speak Chinese, but my guess is that its just something like Dinner Set #1,
or 1 Place Setting, or some such.

What do you mean " want to express"?
I said "it would be a fake" in a humble manner. The radical of the second kanji 徳 doesn't seem to be 彳 gyōninben. (Plus, I don't think there is a real 景徳鎮 that has 景徳鎮 mark on it.)
The last character in the last line might be a defaced 甕 or something. The component at the bottom looks like 瓦.
