This is a contemporary transfer-ornamented vase, no older than late 20th century, with an apocryphal six character mark (shown upside down) reading down and across from the top right as 'Made during the Qianlong Reign of the Great Qing Dynasty' (Da qing Qian long nian zhi). The porcelain body is Chinese, but the decoration could have been applied elsewhere besides Mainland China, including Hong Kong and Macao. It has decorative value only.
