Hi,

Are there any marks or stamps on the underside of this vase?

None that I can see, is there some place I can bring it in?
Expert:  Nora replied 10 months ago.

Hi,

This is a 20th century reproduction piece, likely produced in China of an circa 1895 - 1900 Art Nouveau style vase. On an original the faces would be different, the piece would be signed, and the waves more detailed.

Depending on where you are located, I may be able to refer you to a place where you can bring this in for a second opinion.
