    I bought this vase at an online auction. The previous owner was a Colonel in the Air Force and he and his wife lived in China for 30 years and purchased this vase while living there. The description said FL81-2 Ming Dynasty Vase. I have since found out that it is a Japanese vase - probably Imari Arita. Does anyone know how old it might be or any other information would be very much appreciated. Thanks for your help! Chris

      Your vase is Japanese, I think imari arita.
      Explore this site for marks (your pics shows them upside down!)

      Thank you Kyratango! It makes more sense that the Colonel was stationed in Japan and not China. I really appreciate your help!
