Customer Question
I have two vases...

I have two vases that came to the States during WWII from either Chine or Japan (occupied or unoccupied) How do I find out where they came from and I would like to get a verbal appraisal to see what range of $ they are in?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

I received them from the wife of a Merchant Marine Captain (family member) who brought them over so I know they really came over then. Also, I can not find any markings on them.
