I have a vase, don't know if it's an antique and cannot

Customer Question
I have a vase...

I have a vase, don't know if it's an antique and cannot understand the hallmark. Can I sent pictures? possibly from China as my sister traveled there a lot.

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

It's less than 10" and quite heavy for a vase. I have photos, that's all but the hallmark appears to perhaps be from China. That's all I know.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Like what?

I was lead to believe this was a $5 transaction; I really don't need a membership.
