Customer Question
My father was stationed...

My father was stationed in Japan in the early fifties. When the Japanese Peale who worked with him gave him a gift of a small vase and he was told that it had been in someone's family for several generations. I have recently in heretic this and need to know how much time appraise it for insurence. I live in Houston. Is there anyone I can take it to and what would be a fair price to par? Thank you

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?

It seems to be about 5 inches high and I very good condution. Colors are still bright and with some building I a gold color. It is six sided with a small opening. But has a lot of "crackle" in the clear varnish?
