I have a very large Japanese Satsuma vase/urn It is made in

Customer Question

I have a very large Japanese Satsuma vase/urn It is made in 3 pieces. It stands 7 feet high with a bell top. It is heavily decorated with colour and gold Japanese scenes.
When body is tapped it rings. It appears to be in unmarked condition. I am unable to find any marks, maker or identifier. Being so large it difficult to know where to look.
I can send photos or allow an inspection in Brisbane
I have been told that these large vases were sold in Hong Kong some years ago for $50k
Where can I find an appraiser in Brisbane or elsewhere.
