It shows the same mark as the one on my vase.
During the latter part of the Yongzheng period the zhuanshu seal mark is introduced.

Yongzheng marks
by: peter

Sure, they are both Yongzheng marks. These two look as if they were from an old book when photographs weren't commonly used in books. You can't see the colors which are important.

The problem I have with this is that these marks (most Yongzheng marks) are usually in underglaze blue. Yours is red, but there is only a single red one on white porcelain among dozens of Yongzheng marks I have seen. Only one Yongzheng four character mark is red, with a double frame around it. During the Yongzheng reign red marks were rarely used.
