Coral Red Vases Coral Red Vases Blue Reign Mark

I have a small pair of Chinese vases, 20cm high, with a coral red glaze and yellow medallions with a Shou like character.
I am not able to make out the blue mark on the base and would appreciate your opinion on the circa date and on the reign mark.
Thank you for your assistance.

The shape is European (western); the bottom and colors are not right for traditional Chinese wares. There is a Qing dynasty Jiaqing mark that possibly is apocryphal. Only the Chinese characters point to something Chinese.
Overall said, to me this looks more like a modern product. Perhaps made for export?
