Hi Helen. =)Ok...here goes.1) On your Asian vase, that looks like a Japanese moriage style vase. It looks like there might be some kind of residue on the bottom. It has the traditional figural scene. It actually looks like a temple (ceremonial) scene. There's no mark, so I can't say for sure who made it. It does have some satsuma quality to it. Based on the bottom and the style, it looks pretty old. I'd place it from the early 1900s (around 1915 at the latest). It's pretty high quality. It should have a secondary market value in the range of $150 to $175.2) On your pitcher, Crystal Clear seems to refer to Crystal Clear Industries, which was a US based importer that brought in goods from Poland during the 50s/60s. I can't find any records of them after the early 70s. So, you're pitcher should date around the early 1960s. It should have a secondary market value in the range of $25 to $35.3) On your vase, there's no mark, but I believe it's a Japanese import from around the 1940s. The design was taken from what was pretty popular in the Europe and US around the same time (like Wedgwood designs and some california types of pottery). It might very well be an Inarco vase. As far as what was imported from Japan into the US market during the mid 1900s, they have the closest match in terms of style. They made quite a vew embossed vases with that type of style. If I had to choose one.... it would be that they made it. It's paneled hanging grape design with a fluted top. It should have a secondary market value in the range of $35 to $40.4) On your small set--- that looks like an Individual sugar bowl and salt and pepper shaker. There might have been a creamer originally or a little tray to go with. They were little individual serving sets. I think it originally said "made in japan". Pieces marked with that in plain writing usually date to just before the war, which places it around 1940. It's a pretty set. There were similar designs put out by a company named Maruyama Toki Yamashino Rukei (but he typically dates to around the 30s). It's possible it's one of their last pieces. The painting style is very similar though.It should have secondary value around $50 to $75 for the set.
