I think these porcelains with ancient seals are modern. Do you think it too?

Hello,
I am a beginner and I do not know much about antique porcelain. I bought these two porcelain vases because I found beautiful, intact and cheap. The two marks are from the period qianlong but I think these two vases are modern. Can you help me determine the period of manufacture and give me a approxiamative value of these two objects? With all my thanks and best regards. (translated by Google translate!)

Hello Xavier,

You are probably right with that they are modern. I see you know more than a beginner...:)
Both vases have imperial Qianlong marks.
Judging by the whiteness of the white glaze and the foot rim I would think these are more recent fakes.
Also, this type of imperial Qianlong mark was not used in old copies.
