Excellent pre-owned condition. No chips, cracks, or repairs. The lid doesn't fit securely. I placed a couple of pieces of tape on the rim and it holds securely. No signatures.
An older lady owned this who was a hoarder. No other info.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
The decoration on this vase is characteristic of porcelain made in the late 19th and early 20th Century; it is a fake date mark.
