Hi again. I'm afraid the vase is not that old.
It is made to look like a certain type of antique vase or jar, but I think it is not antique.
First, it's in too good a shape to be hundreds of years old. Then, the foot ring is not right for that period, and there should be no mark.

Also, although I cannot see all characters clearly it is easy to distinguish the characters for "China" at the very beginning. These were never used in a mark that way until modern times.
