Hello my name is***** am a certified appraiser and would be happy to help you. I would need you to send the photos to***@******.*** and in the email please put for ladytanya65 and as soon as I can see the vases I can tell you the information and values on the vases. I am sorry however I can not see the previous photos you sent to the first expert. I look forward to seeing you and have been to several stores in San Francisco many do handle Asian pieces and state they are something different. I will be able to tell you whether they are Murano or something else. Also after I have evaluated them you can print this out and take them back if possible to see if you can get your money refunded or keep them if you like them. I look forward to helping you.
