Q: I have enclosed a photo of a footed porcelain vase that I bought at an estate sale. It is approximately nine inches tall, has two handles and is decorated with Asian scenes of pagodas and trees. The trees are embellished with gold dots, and there is a gold band around the top. On the bottom is a wreath with the letter “M” in the center. Outside the wreath are the words “Hand Painted — Nippon.” Thanks for any information on the age, history and value of my vase.
