Can you help me please to identify these marks and inscriptions

Mark reads,
乾隆年製 - Made During the Qianlong Era
- An apocryphal mark -
The inscription can be translated,

Ethereal colors of morning are simmering in the wine
and the night is dyed in the celestial fragrance
(Said of the peony, or a beautiful woman)

With regards,

Dear Mr. Nagy
I would highly appreciate if you could make your comments and views on the seals which are embossed on the back of the vase that you translated the poem before.

As I have encountered the mane oval marking on several Qianlong period artifacts, I attach the detailed photos which to me seems to be made of under-glazed paste.

I would appreciate if you could explain these markings and your views as to the authenticity of this vase.

Once again thank you in advance for your time and efforts.

Best regards

The oval marking reads,
乾隆御覧之寶 - Treasure seen by Qianlong
This seal was affixed mostly on paintings and calligraphies.
仁作 - Made(Written) by Ren
世寧 - Shining (Painted in (Lang) Shining (郎)
世寧 style is the meaning, Lang Shining (Giuseppe Castiglione a Jesuit missionary 1688-1766 served as artist at the imperial court blended the European style with Chinese painting styles, creating unique works)

I am not an expert on ceramics, therefore I leave the further evaluation on more knowledgeable members.
