Blue and white vase


Dear forum, 
I got a vase that I from what I have learned in this forum believe could be a vase made by De Klaauw. Unfortunately the lid is missing.


Do you believe its genuine?
Is it possible to estimate the manufacturing year (century).
Does anyone have any idea about the building shown in the painting? To me it looks like a castle/fort, but why the empty flag pole at the top? Any ideas are appreciated!

Seems to be an original Delft vase from a 5 piece garniture set made at the end of the 18th century.
