Subject:More Pottery Marks # 5

Back again, grateful for any help including probable age of the two vases pictured below.
In addition to the marks, these have old style China Products price tags on them, at 1980 Yuan, or about USD 350 (before the Yuan was floated) and the price appears to have been written in fountain pen rather than ballpoint (no indentation on the writing as a ballpoint produces and a fluid, uneven appearance, heavier at the edges under microscopic examination.
Yes, I am aware that the characters on the price tag say 'certificated Burmese Jade' but the same stickers were used as price tags on a lot of non Jade products in the late 70s and early 80s. Some of my other priced pieces have the 'jade' bit cut off. They may still be using similar stickers for all I know but will check shortly.
Thanks in advance.
