I`ve recently purchased 2 jars. Could you help me to recognize marks and age. Let`s say that blue one is number one and the other one is number two.

many thanks

Hi Joan,
The blue one is new, looks printed and has a spurious Qianlong mark.
The other one is probably older, but from two pictures it is difficult to check accurately. Close-up details of bottom, decoration and top rim would be needed.
Anyway, it cannot be too old either. This type of ware is still in use and manufactured in quantity. I doubt it is antique.
