What does this mean?

Hi Robert,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
Are there any Chinese character marks on the underside of these vases, or other marks in addition to "Made in China'?
Thanks to confirm at your convenience,

Delia

Hi Delia, on the bottom of each vase, it is just stanped "MADE IN CHINA" . No other markings of any kind.
On the bottom of the wooden bases, there is only a faintly stamped into the wood "CHINA" and near that is a very small printed "Made in China"
That's all the markings
Sorry, there is nothing else.

Thanks, Rob!
These really are not very old - late 20th century - and largely decorative. If these were to go to auction, they would be sold as:
A pair of modern Chinese export style cloisonne enamel baluster vases
Each with floral decoration against a white stylized cloud ground, on wooden bases. Each marked "Made in China".
each 9 inches tall
$75-125 for the pair*
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.

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

Thank you Delia. Can I ask you if you know of any auction house who would take these? We would like to sell these if possible.
Thank you,
Rob

Are these in Barre? I don't know of any auction houses there off the top of my head - and we are not really supposed to recommend a particular house - but we work with lots of auctioneers from relevant and highly qualified auction houses. Your item is in our database of leads and interested auctioneers will reach out to you directly on your email if they can help you sell your item.
If you said "yes" or "maybe" when we asked if your item was for sale auctioneers are now able to contact you. If you said "no" go to your item page and change that to "yes".
Good luck!
