Hello,

On today's market a 5" Weller Sicard Art Glass vase in Leaves and Berries pattern would sell at auction for an average of $600 - $800. The suggested insurance or replacement value is $1500.

Hello,

Retail asking prices on the secondary market and actual sale prices at auction do vary significantly. The estimate quoted to you here is based on actual past sale records at auction. An asking price at retail and a sale price at auction are not usually the same. With that said, you can ask any price you please on any item you own, the key is finding a willing buyer at your price point. In addition, the market on these dropped precipitously from 2007 to 2008 and has not recovered. You can double check my findings by contacting Rago Auction House for free to enquire about an estimate.
