This is a Nippon Coralene vase with a grapes and leaves design. I think if you posted it on Ebay and explained /photographed the repair, you would still get $80-$100.00 for it. If it were in perfect condition, it would have value of $250.00-$300.00. These price are down from recent years since the Japanese have eased in buying back items that were made in Japan.
