Subject:2 CHARACTER MARK ON small vase

Could anyone help with the 2 figure mark on this miniature vase? Any info would be helpful, thanks!

Chinese mark: Wanyu 玩王. The meaning is rather abstract but can perhaps be translated as "jade trinket" or "antique porcelain as fine as jade".

Source: Gotheborg website - Chinese Porcelain Marks.
Scroll down to: Wanyu.

Since I'm not a Chinese porcelain expet, I dare not make a statement about age.
