A little hard to read at so small an image, and it is lying on its side, which makes it even harder to read. But essentially it is a mark claiming to be of the time of the TongZhi emperor. So, Tong Zhi Nian Zhi - 同治年制. It looks like a rubber stamped seal so could be considerably younger.
Pity this is still another case of someone asking for assistance but not sharing an image of the whole object, which may have helped ascertain the age or authenticity.
