I have a Made In England Wedgewood Vase with the number 1001

Customer Question

I have a Made In England Wedgewood Vase with the number 1001 marked on the bottom. How can I find out if this vase is of any value. It belonged to my mother or possibly even my grandmother.
I also have another tall slim vase with only the number 2297 on the bottom nothing of where it was made.
The third one is a tall vase with handle on each side and flowers around it. Noritake made in Japan. It belonged to my grandmother

I have sent pictures of the marks on the bottom of the items and have no reply. Therefore I request a full refund of the amount.

There is only one photo of the bottom of one vase and it came through at 1am when I was in bed.Would you like to try a photo of the bottoms of the three again and have me continue?
