I've collected Martens for many years and this is about as fake as they come. I've only ever seen one signed piece and that was a one off exhibited in Venice in the 1950's. I'm afraid I must agree with the far east as the origin of this vase with signature added elsewhere.
There is no distance on earth as far away as yesterday.

I do agree that this is neither Corrado "Dino" Martens, nor Aureliano Toso. The vase could even be a little older and of different origin than the far east and some "clever" person tried to engrave Dino Martens on it to increase it's value.
