Tall Vase

Over a year ago I purchased this vase through Craigslist. I responded to an ad for a mid century dresser that didn't work out, but the seller, an older gentleman, had numerous other items for sale that he didn't list. I purchased this striking vase for a very reasonable price of $35.00. 

Over time I realized that it doesn't go with my decor, but enamored of it, I didn't want to let it go. Now I'm ready (this is starting to sound like a relationship) and would like to try to sell it on craigslist. Here's my problem: I know little about vases, there are no markings on this vase and I have no idea what kind of value to put on it. 

Here's what I do know: This heavy vase is 21" tall and measures 35" in circumference at it's widest point. It is in excellent condition. There are light reflections in the photo on the center, right and especially the left, that do not exist on the vase.

Any help at all would be very much appreciated!


  1. Can't help you Jil, but it is a lovely vase. The green reminds me of long grass. I've been slow (!) to open my sweet dreams shop mostly because I can't work out what to sell things for.

  2. Boy I wish I could help Jil but I really have no clue about this one! Maybe you can post it on a pottery forum?

  3. That's a great idea, I'm going to do that
