    Hmm, that's an odd one. I have a sneaking suspicion it's actually a European interpretation of Oriental ware, perhaps early 20th century in date. There are many features which just don't seem right for Japanese/Chinese starting with the characters which look to me like they are just made up, they don't appear to be real kanji.

    I'd want to see what's under that wood. The gilding reminds me of Derby, tbh.

    I agree that the style looks very European chinoiserie. There may be clues to the maker in that cartouche with the tubes (scrolls? fasces?), axe, scimitar, banner, and coral.

    Yes, they are neither Chinese nor Kanji characters.

    Chinoiserie. Those "characters" are anything but, just scribbles trying to imitate Chinese writing.

    Very nice! Agree on European, mostly French:)
    A good sign for a valuable item is that the electric mounting have been done without piercing the vase (that drastically lower value, if a piece wasn’t originally a lamp!).
