Your link was much more informative than mine. The 350 Chinese yuan/renminbi works out to about US$50.00, but it's still around a month's salary for some jobs in China these days. During the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, leading cadre in charge of production units were always looking for historical and other models to emulate, and this kiln probably seemed like a good one, or at least a safe one politically.
I can't imagine your vase is a modern fake, because nobody in China has that much nostalgia about the Cultural Revolution as far as I know. Here's another link to the English site for Yoycart.com, a Shanghai-based internet mall dealing in Chinese products and is selling Cultural Revolution-era porcelain to European and other foreign buyers (and I suppose Chinese too). If the link works, properly, it should show the search results for Cultural Revolution-era wares being offered under the same Chinese name that appears as a watermark on the photos of the vase shown at your link, which I believe probably is the Yoycart name in Chinese, "博艺瓷軒" (Bo yi ci xuan - Pavilion of Extensive Artistic Porcelain). Everything they're selling looks authentic late 60s-70s to me.
