Franklin Van Valkenburg Vase
by Tim Van Valkenburg
Franklin Van Valkenburg was the Captain of the Arizona. Sometime in the 1930 he was in Japan and brought this vase to Hawaii. My Grandfather Cyril Van Valkenburg brought it to San Diego, my Father brought it to Fort Lauderdale and now I have it in Amarillo Texas. It is in excellent condition and I was told it is over 100 years old. May not be obvious from the photo but it is 48 inches tall and weighs about 80 lbs.. I have searched for information on the bottom markings and come up zilch. It is not for sale but I am curious about its origins. Any information is appreciated. Thanks, Tim Van Valkenburg
