Customer Question
I have 2 porcelain...

I have 2 porcelain vases. They are black with pink roses and gold and green leaves on the front. They stand about 12" tall. They have the mark BOW on the bottom and a number painted in gold. What is the value of the vases?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

I believe the vases originated from England and belonged to my grandmother.
