It's a Chinese vase: the shape suggest it was intended for Export to the west (That kind of vase was used for instance by the Dutch as Flower Holder) The six-charakter mark at the bottom says Da Qing Qian Long Nian Zhi (Great Qing-Dynasty Qianlong Year Made) and is probaly apocryphal and much later. Qianlong-Dynastie (1736-95) marks an artistic climax, even in the range of goods for export which were often of lesser quality. Your vase doesn't looks up to the standards, I'm affraid. Might be a modern fake/reproduction. Would be interested in the opinion of the forums experts though.
