mark
by: peter

Hello,
The marks was clear enough in your original pictures. It is a spurious Qianlong mark.
Qianlong marks were never stamped but drawn by hand, mostly in underglaze blue, with only a few in red. This mark was apparently applied with a stamp (possibly rubber stamp) in a light red or orange color. This is typical of 20th century products. The original vase cannot be called a fake, it is just a newer product.
Marks are not usable for dating Chinese porcelain.

The style of the vase and painting was non-existent in imperial China (especially the flowers were different).

You could try asianart.com . They may be able to help with vintage and newer items, perhaps.
