This strange Dragon vase has no makers marks and I'm not even sure what its made of? it weighs 1kg and is approx 28cm high.
If anyone has any information that would be great thanks.

    HUMMM? It may be a Red Lacquer Chinese Vase? Here are some examples.

    Hi Thanks so much for the info guys I have checked out the sight you suggested dave and I think your correct on saying its very similar, I have had an offer of $300 for mine but did'nt take it as Im still learning about this particular type of vase, as for cinnibar is that the name for the type of vase's that Dave has refured to?
    I found one on line that looks to be the same as mine and they are suggesting it is about 100yrs old? that would make it quite young considering this type of art work has been going on for 2500 yrs. is it a sort after type of vase even though quite resent?
