Age and value of antique vase?

by Antti
(Finland)

I received this vase as gift some 15 years ago while visiting Huang Shan mountains. I just wondered

1) how old this might be
2) does it have commercial value?
3) What means the symbol in the bottom of the vase?

This is some 45 cm wide and 9 cm deep.

tea tray

This is Fangge ware. It looks as if it is not very old; such crackle items are still being made.
Due to its size it is probably intended to be used as a tea tray, that is for placing utensils or tea cups, etc. when pouring tea.

Cannot see any symbol on the bottom...
