Strange Old Chinese Vase

I found this vase at an antique store and purchased it. Just want to see if it is real or an obvious fake. Thanks Peter.

The crackles can be artificially made.
The decoration is transfer printed. There is a Ming dynasty mark - Ming dynasty, a time when transfer printing didn't even exist.
This is a recently made item, at the most late 20th century, or later.
I wouldn't call this a fake, it is just too obvious.
