Customer Question
I bought a vase...

I bought a vase at an estate sale and the name on the bottom of the vases is hard to make out looks like it is Eco Bon not sure if you can help me it could possibly in another language. it is a Pink water pitcher with Orange and Yellow handles on it.

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. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

It is definitely a piece of art and I can not make out the artist on the bottom I could send a picture if that would help

Will you be able to add pictures? Does it look like it reads Royal Bonn?
