Subject:Vase - Republic or earlier ?
Posted By: Peter Wed, Jan 05, 2022 IP: 184.108.40.206
Hello. I'm considering purchasing a vase which I find quite attractive.
Unfortunately, It has at some time been converted into a lamp. However, looking at the photos I've seen, it appears that the cable may be routed through the neck of the vase, thereby avoiding the need to drill a hole in the base. I'm also a bit perturbed as to how the wooden stand is 'secured' to the vase base - if this is indeed the case - as it seems to be in one picture.
I assume that the vase was originally made with a fitted lid.
Anyway, I would be grateful for any expert opinion(s) of the vase and it's approximate age, if possible.
Many thanks for any help or guidance.
