Shenyang Imperial Palace
The 4-character mark to the base of the vase is the hallmark reading Jiayin Tang zhi (Hall of Admirable Protection of Posterity) refers to a location in the Shenyang Imperial Palace. Constructed in the 17th century and expanded by the Qianlong Emperor in 1780, the palace was closely modeled on the Forbidden City in Beijing but also incorporated Tibetan and Manchurian styles. https://alaintruong2014.wordpress.com/2014/11/03/a-rare-blue-and-white-lotus-candlestick-qing-dynasty-jiaqing-daoguang-period/
