Hi,

Thank you for your patience. The impressioned mark on your vase roughly translates to Da Qing Qianlong Nian Zhi which means Great Qing Dynasty, Qianlong Period, Made. On Chinese marked pieces, the 'period made' on the mark does not actually mean that is when the object dates to and was made, instead it means it was done in the style that came about in the mentioned period. Your vase dates to the late 19th to early 20th century and done in an 18th century style. On today's market, your vase can sell for $150 - $350.
