wanli wucan vase?

Picked a couple of these vases up recently. I am thinking that they are reproductions because the red color is quite watery. Is it legit or not? How much would you estimate their value to be?

The decoration on your piece is very rough simulation of fish-and-waterweeds decoration found on some middle-Ming wine jars in a few famous collections. This sort of wucai decoration not found on the bottle shape you show.

As Peter says, the mark is a fake and your bottle was made quite recently.

If you post in future, be sure that one of the images is of the entire piece, straight-on, so viewer can have true idea of whole shape.

This is a fake in my view. The bottom is not right for any time and Wanli bottoms are different.
