Customer Question

I have a vase with no markings. However I could send a picture

Hi! My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help with your vase. What a beauty!

Is there an artist signature in the scenic painting anywhere? If so, could you read what it says or attach a photo.

And, could you very kindly attach a photo of the entire bottom.

Even though unmarked, there are other important clues there as to age and origin.

Is the twig handle undamaged?

Also, what height is the vase?

Many thanks and wait to hear,


Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No signature that I can find
Twig handle is in tact
31" in height
Not sure if attatchments are included

Thankyou, some how does not seem realistic
Expert:  Robert S. replied 1 month ago.

Hello again! Thanks for getting back to me.

When you say it "somehow does not seem realistic", do you mean the twig handle is not realistic? That it is not made of the same material as the rest of the vase? So not porcelain? Some other material? If so what would you say it is?

Also, sorry for my poor communication on the request for a photo of the bottom of the vase, I meant the "underside of the bottom". Could you very kindly attach a photo of it. Use the brightest angled light you can find (not flash), perhaps take it over to a window to let the daylight shine on it. Rest it on a pillow to avoid damaging any of those wonderful flowers.

Many thanks,
