Customer Question
Have a vase signed...

Have a vase signed by "Caplos" or Caplan but not sure how it is spelled or it valuable. Thanks!

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.

Vase is about 18 to 21 inches high

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

It is clear cut to clear and has a base on the bottom
