Older chinese vase marks have the distribution like in the image below:

Ask Your Own Antiques Question

However in you case, the mark of the vase does not correlate to any of the older reported Chinese marks. Nor because it does not fit in the distribution of the seals, but because the seals at that time were not so "artistic"-they reproduced sharp and crisp chinese calligraphy. In your case, the best fit for the mark corresponds to a modern period, and most importantly, to a Japanese modern porcelain period.

In this period there were hundreds of manufacturers and it is very difficult to exactly locate the one that produce this vase. Normally, the stamps are only recorded for very well known manufacturers, so many pieces are sold as modern Japaneses porcelain, which would be your particular case.

I hope that this information is useful to you. I have found your vase very vivid in colors, which definitely, is something that collectors always appreciate.

Regarding the value of your item, I have just perform a market research of similar sold items as yours. I performed the research based upon the most recent finished auctions and private sells, so the value given is the real market value of your item. This is the only way to know the exact value of your unit.

The value will be in the range of 500-700$.

Please, use the stars to rate my answer or let me know if I can help you any further!
