I only have a picture of the vase that I am inquiring on (as shown in the attached photo on my original email). I'm only inquiring on the vase that is sitting on the mantel over the fireplace. If you are able to tell me the style/type, if its a vase, planter, basin I'm not familiar with the proper language for this item that I'm trying to find so I apologize. I am absolutely in love with this blue and white large bottom vase/planter with which appears to have a gilt bronze ormolu or brass base.
I appreciate your help in my determination of finding this item.Carol Ledesma

Carol, it looks like a planter. It also loos like a contemporary decorator item rather than a specific period. Often the magazines keep track of the items they use in a photoshoot. You can contact them to learn more about the piece.
