Customer Question
I have a royal...

I have a royal Nippon moire owl vase and have no idea how much it would be worth or how to sell it. it has a number 1042 on bottom and a signature I cannot read because it is faded

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 the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

I saw one exactly like it on computer, but it was bathed in shiney light and this one is dull
