    I'm trying to find information on this vase.

    I haven't been able to find anything like it and it has no identifying marks.

    After polishing a small area, it appears that the inside is definitely copper (first picture-compared with a copper pan).
    The bottom outside of the vase is brass (second picture-compared with a solid brass candle holder).

    I'm not sure what the outside inlayed pattern (over the white-or the white itself) is made of.

      This is a cloisonne vase - the exterior is enamel laid in the bronze pattern.
      Possibly Chinese?
      Hopefully one of our posters with more knowledge about this can help.
