Hello,
The single character mark says "qing", which means blue...
From the age signs and type of blue color it could be from the late Ming dynasty, but I would rather attribute it to the early Qing dynasty. If it was made in one of the Fujian kilns, it could be later.
I can't verify this now as I am on vacation, though. Maybe someone can give you a more accurate age.
