Hey there friends, I picked up a pair of vases that I am pretty sure are Chinese because they dont look like the korean or japanese. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

Hi,

Yes, it is Chinese silver. The information on the bottom shows they are from Peking. The purity of silver is 980 or above. It is supposed to be made in the late 19 Century or ealry of 20 century. That is a high quality of silver work and it is rare to find now even in China.
Best wishes,
Bo

Town mark is "北京" (read from right to left) which means Beijing.
Material mark is "足紋" (top to bottom) which means Fine Silver.
"乙" is an internally used mark, only god knows the meaning now.
Maker's make is illegible unfortunately.
