Can you date this vase like thing?

Here is the last one. I think the photos are not really clear on this. I am wondering what this is? How old? Is the metal rim normal for the piece or added later?
There are other objects around with these aged tones. The blue is deep and a little bit glowing. The white has turned a bit off to an antique color.
Thanks again in advance..

blue and white vase
by: peter

Apparently, this vases was fit with a copper mouth after the mouth was cut off. This is usually the case when a vase had a damaged mouth or neck and it was repaired with a metal like copper, tin or other.

The tone of the blue points to chemical pigment that started to be used only in the late Qing dynasty. Therefore, this is perhaps about Guangxu reign.
