My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. The next step would be for me to see pictures so that I can get visual clues of the date and value. Use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures. Add pictures of the item and of any marks, writing or labels.

You can also email the pictures to***@******.*** and put 'for rarewares in antiques' in the subject line so that they will forward to me. This way takes a few hours usually, so thank you in advance for your patience.

You did a great job with the photo!

This is a circa 1910 Austrian Royal Vienna porcelain vase in an amphora shape with Angelica Kauffmann scenes. Kauffmann (1741-1807) was an Austrian female artist and her work was recreated on porcelain. The vase was not painted by her, but is a representation of her work and they give her the credit by adding a form of her signature. Many porcelain companies in Austria used depictions of her work on porcelain. The scenes were transferred on rather than hand painted, then made to look hand painted by adding a touch of highlight enamel paint in areas. This vase has a value of $110 to $150 in value.
