Good afternoon, Amanda,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
The paper label that reads "Hecho en Cuba / Made in Cuba" is a 20th Century label - it's difficult to know for certain when it was made as these have been made somewhat continuously, before, during and after Castro though from the staining and age of the label, I these are most likely 1900-1950. Based on the photographs and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

An assembled group of three turned and glazed wooden (possibly Mahogany) vases
Made in Cuba, first half 20th Century
The smallest: 2 1/2” high by 2” diameter
The middle: 4 1/4” high by 2” diameter
The largest: 10” high by 3 1/4” diameter

Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you for using Mearto.
