Hi,

Thank you for your patience.

These are Chinese Poudre Bleu porcelain baoyueping or bianhu form vases, also called moon or pilgrim's flask vases.

The mark on the underside phonetically translates to Da Qing Qianlong Nian Zhi, which means Great Qing Dynasty, Qianlong Period, Made.

The Qianlong Period was from 1711 - 1799; however with marks on Chinese wares, the characters state a Dynasty after which the style of the item is made. In other words, the Dynasty or reign mentioned in the mark does not mean it was made during that time. Your moon flask vase pair was produced in the 2nd half of the 20th century and not during the 18th century.

High value for the pair together is $200 - $400 on today's market.

You will now need to take a moment to leave a rating by clicking the stars. If you require further assistance, no worries, the question thread does not close even after leaving a rating.
