Hello, my name is***** am one of the expert appraisers here at justanswer. I would be happy to help you. I would like to see the bottom of the vase if possible and any markings on the vase, close up and clear. Also what are the measurements of the vase? This will help in the evaluation of the vase. I look forward to helping you. Thank you Tanya

Hello, Thank you for the photo and measurements. This is a beautiful Japanese porcelain from Arera, an area in Japan. The vase was made in 1900-1910 by the size, color and design. The insurance value on a vase of this nature today is $2,300.00 It would be 1200-1500.00 on the secondary market as the value to sell is what people will pay for it and in the economy today there is not much money to pay full value for a piece. This is a vase that will rise in value over time so do keep it safe if you wish to hold on to it. If I may be of further service please let me know. I am always happy to help. Also, please rate the answer when you have time as this is how I am paid from the site. thank you again it is a very nice vase.
