It is highly improbable that this item is from the Qianlong period, or antique.
The orange color and bottom are not right either for that period nor any time in the 19th century. I could only place it in the 20th century.

The foot rim does not look like anything from the Qianlog period either. The same is valid for the unglazed bottom and color smeared over the foot rim. Qianlong quality was much better than that.
It looks more as if it were new or recently made.
This is my personal view, so please ask for a second opinion to make sure.
