A Ming Dynasty Chinese fragment

Just a quick question. I've been working for a little while on a fragment of a Ming Dynasty teacup with a partial inscription on it, and I think I've finally worked out what the inscription might be. The reason I'm posting is to ask if anyone could tell me what the pinyin for the phrase 万福攸同 would be, and give me a decent translation into idiomatic English? I can work out most of the pinyin using online tools but apparently there's more than one option for a couple of the tones, and the grammar of the phrase eludes me completely (I don't know any Chinese at all - the only way I was able to work out the phrase is that I do know how to use a character dictionary...).

Thank you all in advance!
