    Hi, I was wondering if someone can help me identify this dark glazed vase or urn. It has some stickers or labels on the bottom that appear to be from a past auction. The vase and the stickers do appear to be older. Thanks in advance.

    Hello Kevolee, welcome to the forum.
    It is a type of Martaban jar, from southeast Asia. Martaban is the name of a port in Myanmar, where Chinese ships used to come for supplies. Most Martaban jars have rings attached to the shoulder, originally meant to tie them to the ship. They are still being made in southeast Asia, which includes parts of China.

    Could you please edit your thread and click on 'full image, so we can see them properly? This is how:
