Hello,
Pictures with more details (closeups) done under natural lighting would be better for evaluating this.
But, the colors and painting style don't look right in these pictures. Better light may change the colors, but the style or pattern remains the same. If this is old, then I would look into the possibility that it could be Japanese. They copied a lot of Chinese motifs and marks in the past.
