Hi Roger,
My name is***** have been dealing in and appraising Antiques for over 40 years, and I can help you with this. Your vase is circa 1920. This would sell for $500-700 at auction. Here is a link to a similar one colors vary. http://www.trocadero.com/stores/louisc4me/items/784328/item784328.html

Thank you,

Hi Wayne, thank you for the quick reply. I did forget to tell you that my vase is singed. Does that make a difference in the value?
