The only thing I see is that someone paid far too much for provenance.  This appears to a post 1860's bottle to me, though the auction house description says otherwise.  If truly mark and period of Jiaqing, I would expect far more precision in the painting of the design and the gold enameling should be contained within the black framing of the border; i.e., not slopped over the lines.  Also, the period mark is poorly done which again leads me to post 1860 piece.  To me this bottle's value is far less than $1000, and I would say someone paid $770 for bottle and $7000 for the provenance.
