Hello peter,

Can you tell me how old these vases are, and how can you see the difference between 19de and 20th century vases? Best regards John,

John,
To me this looks like a low-quality fake, recent or new.
The bottom was treated to make it look dirty and old, and the mark is a false Qianlong mark.
Apart from the bottom the decoration part with the people, as well as the house in the background are especially easy to recognize as a fake.
I must say that modern reproductions or new items sold as such often are of better quality.
