I have my grandmothers vase that she got as a wedding present.

Customer Question

I have my grandmothers vase that she got as a wedding present. She passed away over 30 years ago at the age of 93. All it says on the bottom is "hand painted" and a leaf on the bottom with something I can't read. It's a floral pattern with gold on it and handles. I can't find anything online like it to see what it might be worth. I live in Tamps and should I just call an appraiser to see what it's worth or can I send a picture to you.
Thank you, Mary

Hi Mary~ My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question. At your convenience, please send photos. A full image with the design and a clear, in-focus close-up of the mark would be ideal. When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range. When evaluating an item, photos are essential to helping me come to a correct assessment. There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos: http://ww2.justanswer.com/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here. Sincerely,Nora
