    is there any way to tell the age on these? 22938399_20200729122858.jpg 60005678_20200729122847.jpg 55635194_20200729122850.jpg 81747168_20200729122854.jpg 89324258_20200729122852.jpg

    Beautiful, sunday.
    Not all Delfts or delftware is marked. If they are marked it would be on the base, so you would have seen it. Could we see the bases anyway?

    This is a shape I have never seen before. Tulip vases were (and are) made in different countries, but they originated in Persia, as did blue and white glaze on ceramics. The shape traveled to Europe, but also to Central Asia and China.
    The shape of these has a Persian look, but I haven't seen it on the original Persian tulip vases either.

    @say_it_slowly ?:)

    Perhaps start with the material, from the first photo it looks like it may be porcelain. If so from that I'd venture a guess these may be Chinese. Just guessing. Base may(or may not) be helpful.

    Those dark rims are seen on some Chinese blue and white ceramics. Those Persian inspired borders and motifs as well.

    Try starting with the material. Are they porcelain or earthenware? What do the bases look like?

    Chinese Porcelain body, so as @janetpjohn pointed out, Chinese.

    Rare to see old delftware without a single chip.

    These vases look 20thc to me, remove fuzzy feet as @say_it_slowly says. Seems like some are marked in the central base, but of course any reign mark would be apocryphal.
