So this is Japanese (as opposed to Chinese), a bulbous footed vase with oriental phoenix head and wing handles, which style dates it to the late Meiji period, circa 1880 - 1900.
The decoration is known as Satsuma 'yaki' or Satsuma export ware, and the figures on the side that I can see are two court ladies and a boy framed in boldly painted vining flowers that look like they might be abutilon, a great favorite of the Japanese. I'm guessing there's possibly a Samurai warrior general and other male figures on the other side (assuming, as I can't see all the way round the vase).
Satsuma is both an aesthetic style and a type of pottery and it's also a region. Originally all Satsuma was produced near Kagoshima at the very southern tip of Kyushu on the southern island of Japan but later it became so popular in the West that production expanded to Osaka, Tokyo, Yokohama, Kagoshima, Kobe, Nagoya and Kyoto.
At the time your vase was made, the bulk of it was being produced in Kyoto and exported to the west via Kobe. Your style of export ware Satsuma has now come to be known as "Kyoto Satsuma".
One can almost always recognize Satsuma by the fine crazing it often has. I can just make it out on the base. It's not age crazing, it was created intentionally when the piece was fired in the kiln. The clay is earthenware (rather than porcelain) and should have a somewhat dull sound when you tap it, unlike porcelain which 'pings' with a sustained note when tapped.
The raised paste enamel in the beautiful brocade patterns, particularly around the neck and shoulder and foot of the vase, is an elaborate and hard-to-do decorative technique that the Japanese call moriage -pronounced "mori-ah-gay". It's a process similar to icing a cake with a piping bag. The colored paste-like slip is squeezed through a tube, and the resulting decoration is characteristic of this "Nippon era" art pottery, so called after the old name for Japan, prior to 1920.
The mark on the bottom of the footrim is two kanji inscription that's too indistinct to read.
Kyoto Satsuma export ware often has curious marks like this, that look like they are maker's marks but are not. It's generally agreed that these are fettler's marks, or internal factory codes or numbers for groups or pairs of vases.
As for value, sadly this kind of Japanese decoration is not as sought after by collectors as it once was and prices have softened from what they were say a generation ago. Antiques are subject to fashion like anything else and values go in cycles so this will change, I'm sure.
For the moment, if you saw an identical vase for sale in an antique store it would have a full retail price of about $2500. This is also the replacement value for insurance purposes.
The ebonized or lacquered wood pedestal stand is a particularly fine example of Meiji furniture and I would insure it for $1250.
Expect to get in the range of 30% - 40% of these values if you were to sell at a good antique auction house.
I do hope this helps.
Please let me know if you'd like me to explain or expand on any of the above, I would be glad to.
