Hi Hanh,
How large is your vase? Although, your vase is not from Qianlong period but it looks ok to me. I think it should have some vale but just not millions.

Did you buy this at an auction? If at an antique dealer's shop, you might ask the dealer to confirm that it is a period item, or ask if he knows (some don't know much about Chinese ceramics). But this might help clarify if you can return an item if it proves to be fake or newer than stated.

If you buy mainly for investment, with an eye to reselling higher at a later time, then it is a different matter than with purely collecting.
If you are buying mainly for learning or collecting Chinese ceramics, it is recommended that you start with plates, cups, bowls, etc. because they are usually lower in price than vases, jars and other big items.

Thankyou

Dear Hanh,
Your vase looks nice. I agree with Peter that it should be late Qing piece with Qianlong mark. However, it is very hard to say by only seeing the photos.

Hanh,
I am not saying this is a fake, but without the mark and blue bottom it would be easier to date. in these pictures the coral red/gilt base color and the paintings in the windows look all right for late Qing or early republic.
But the blue bottom and mark do not quite fit in. The mark would be a Qianlong reign mark, but the decoration could not be Qianlong period, in my view. A mark on Chinese porcelain does not mean the items is from that period. The coral red color only got popular in the second half of the 19th century.
With this it is difficult to tell whether it is late Qing dynasty or a later copy. The decoration would be right, but the bottom/mark not, for late Qing.

I wish you would take a look at the sections of the "Marks", and "Fake Antiques" in the left menu, before you buy. The chance that you find a period piece with a genuine mark is small.

If this is old, then the only conclusion can be that it was made in the late Qing or early republic with a fake mark, I'm afraid.

Please ask for a second opinion.
