Hi Peter,

Thanks for your comments on my vase.I agree with you that it is difficult to tell whether this vase is old or new. I have not yet seen a similar vase for comparison.

Hi Ruud,
I'm not so comfortable with pottery items of this sort, I must say. The first impression I get is that it is new. The foot rim doesn't seem right to me.

Also, this is not a carved item, it was made in a mold. My impression is that antique molded items have a less intricate decoration. To me it seems the decoration is too complex for such an item.
What do you think?
