Dark approximate 3 ft floor vase with three very detailed

Customer Question

Dark green approximate 3 ft floor vase with three very detailed bronze Asian-looking maidens holding hands, bought in an antique shop in New Orleans about 30 years ago

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


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


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.

The faces are each different, some of the waves are raised. I live in Park Ridge, il 60068 and would love to have someone look at it, thank you
