Thank you for your thoughtful inputs.
As to the colors in the screenshots, I would not pay too much attention to such details. All images published by that auction house tend to be discolored.
Of course there is a chance that this item may have been manufactured as late as the 18th or even the early 19th century.
I did not view it personally, so I took over both the images and the description from the auction house.
