What does this mean?

Hi Rhonda,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
I'm not entirely sure what the purpose of this is; from the dimensions, it's a little small to be a garden seat and a little big to be a hat stand, both of which typically have pierced sides.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

A Japanese parcel gilt and brass mounted porcelain vessel
20th Century
In a stylized Imari palette featuring a large lobed medallion with a wheeled basket with flowers, the red and gold ground with stylized flowers and medallions, bearing a paper label underneath marked "JAPAN," all on an ebonized wooden stand.
28 inches overall height
CONDITION: appears to be in good condition
PROVENANCE: acquired at an estate sale
$200-300*
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.
