Hi Celine,

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help with your Cantonese vase. Thanks for the photo.

Can you very kindly attach a couple of sharp close ups of the figures. There are specifics about the way the features of the faces and other details are drawn that allows us to date these pieces to the nearest decade or two, but I need to see yours a little closer to be able to tell.

Also, how big is the vase?

Many thanks and wait to hear.

Hi Robert, tks for your response. The vase is 9.5” tall with maximum diameter 14”. I am now trying to upload some new close-ups. Pls let me know if they are suitable.
Best wishes, Celine
