Several pieces of china and other artifacts have been passed down in our family for many generations. This particular piece was imported via a relative who spent some time in Asia during the 1800s. It's slightly damaged and was (not expertly) repaired at some point. We've not been able to determine its origin or the approximate date it might have been made, or its possible value. Can you help us identify & perhaps date it?

Thank you Stan & Peter

Peter, thank you for posting my question and taking a look.
Stan, your comments are a good starting point to more research and determining the urn's worth. I'm not so sure I want to sell it, since it's been in our family for quite some time and it's not in premium condition. Many thanks in any case.
