My name is ***** ***** I would love to help.

The next step would be for me to see pictures of the item as well. Both pictures were of the bottom.

I will be able to answer without another photo.

This is a the mark that reads from right to left Great King Qianlong Period Make/Qianlong Nian Zhi. The smaller triangular mark is an importer mark from Macao. The vase is a famille jaune (yellow family) enamel painted vase made in the early 20th century with a spurious Qianlong mark (1700's) meant for decoration only. It is common to see faux reign marks on modern pieces from Macao and China. This vase has a value of $150 to $200.

This question only pertains to the vase. You already have another question open on the newspaper that another expert will handle separately.

The newspaper is from about 1945-52. It is not of any significant value to an ephemera collector, possibly $10 to $20.00.
