    We inherited this vase from my wife's aunt. All we know is that is possibly early 20th century. Is it possible to detrmine origin and value?
    We would appreciate any information that is possible.
    Thank you
    Nick and Barb

      It's a huamei (Garrulax canorus) bird and wisteria, two designs beloved by Cixi. The quality of the painting, the marks, and the porcelain, in general, tell me this is later, probably in the last 50 years.
