Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This appears to be a japanese champleve enamel vase, of spherical shape, with small footrim and narrow opening, ornately decorated with flowers and butterflies. The colourful traditional floral design of the chrysanthemum flower and butterflies is quite common, but the vase in your possession already shows the bold design of the art deco era. Production date should be first quarter 20th century. The estimate is based on similar items offered or sold at auction. "Asking prices" in the trade can be higher and vary.
