Expert's Assistant: OK. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Not much it is approximately 31/2 feet high 10 inches diameter with Dragon heads, vines with fruit, and many different types of objects. All of these objects are raised all around the vase.
