Hi,

My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question. Your satisfaction is my top goal.

I really like these figures, these are very detailed in a medium green jade. There has been many many jade figures produced (both modern and antique). Your figured seen to be a bit higher quality and detail than some. To determine exactly what you have, we are going to have to find some markings to get us pointed in the right direction. Are there any makings on the base or on the figures?

I look forward to hearing from you,

Jon

The figurines are faux jade (plastic) made in Hong Kong circa 1960. The pair is worth $75 retail.

The vase is a Japanese Satsuma earthenware vase with moriage enamel detail and a warrior theme. The bottom reads 'LEFT' indicating that this was one of a pair of right and left vases, which was common. This vase was made circa 1910 and has a value of $80 to $90.00.
