Asian vases

I purchased the set of vases from a garage sale. The design and pattern are beautiful. I would like to know what can you tell me about the marking and the designs?

Are You Sure?

I saw a similar vase to this one in a musuem. Same design, but different color with handles. It is my understanding that there are some reproductions of period antiques, though not the original, but still the same they are antiques.

Hi Linda,
The image of the vase is too small to allow seeing details, but from this picture I can tell that the colors used and the way the tree (is it a pine?) is painted point to a 20th century item.
The mark is a spurious Qianlong mark. These marks were never stamped or off center placed. Obviously, it is only for decoration.
