The seal on your vase with decoration in the Chinese style appears to be 新 (xin), meaning 'New' or 'Fresh', and also constituting an abbreviation for China's Xinjiang Province. I'd speculate that 'Fresh' is intended as a title for the verdant, spring-like scene. The landscape is depicted in Chinese traditional scroll-painting style, though the cobblestone ground enclosing the reserves might be conjectured as a more recent innovation, perhaps 1930s or early post-World War II.

Best regards,
