I have inherited a Capedemonte jug with lid about 18inches tall

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Also a Satsuma vase 12 inches tall - I cannot see a maker mark on the base.

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

I've got stuff from my mother and grandmother and my children don't want it so I would rather it be sold to someone who really wants it.
