Hi again.

What size is this? It looks like it's only about 5 or 6 inches tall.

I thought so. Thanks!

.
This is a little uncommon. Most of these kind of vases are shaped like boots. Usually they're actually button hook style Victorian boots. While yours does have a bit of the button closure style along the top, it has actual toes. That makes it more of a foot vase rather than a boot vase. That's what makes it a bit unusual. That's a Made in Italy foot vase.

.

It should date to about the 1960s. Given that it's stamped Made in Italy in a sort of block stamp, it was made for Export. These don't really have huge value, but it's a cute piece and still worth about $20 to $25.

.

I noticed you posted quite a few questions last night and this morning. You may want to hold on posting anymore questions for a bit. Customer service might put a flag on your account. I've been told by some of my customers that if you post too many questions in a short time, the site will flag you and might turn off your subscription.

.

I'd hate to see that happen, so I wanted to try and warn you.

.

If you have any questions, please let me know.
