In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to see images and clear, in-focus close-ups of the mark

If you had already attached images to your initial posting, they are not showing for me here on my end.

Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.

I received your images, thank you for them and for your patience.

The mark on your Delft vase is for Oud Delft (Old Delft) which was founded by Roelof Elshout in 1920 in Nijmegen and active until 1995 when they were bought by Delftsche Huys.

Delft is a Dutch city and also a type of pottery from Holland. It is technically tin glazed earthenware, the majority being white with blue handpainted underglaze decoration. In England and Italy glazed earthenware is called majolica and in France it is called faience.

Here is a link for you to a comparable Oud Delft vase #180 that sold for $400:

Expect to garner around the same amount for your vase as well.
