    I am generally into Militaria and Police memorabilia... but I found this piece intriguing at a recent garage sale. I know little to nothing about pottery/ceramics.

    The lady that owned this vase (in her 60s) said that her Great Aunt was given the item as a wedding gift, and she obtained it after her passing. She believed that she had been married some time right around , or just prior to the 2nd world war.

    There are absolutely no markings or signatures that I've been able to locate.

    The vase is apx 16" height, and ~8'' diameter. The figures appear to possibly be Greek ( or Roman?) In style, and have fairly intricate details.

    Would love to find out what this is!
    I have numerous photos with plenty of detail... however cant seem to upload due to file size. Maybe I can send them in a conversation?

    Well that certainly looks similar!
    Thanks for the quick reply.
    I'm assuming, being a replica, even if produced in the 40's (unknown how reliable that statement was regarding her great aunt)... its value is minimal?
    It was bundled with some antique items that I actually was familiar with, so I didn't pay much... dont worry about offending me. Haha.
    Thanks!

    If you email photos to yourself as Medium, it will make them the right size to post.
    A photo of the bottom might help those who low about ceramics to determine more.

    That's the one!
    Any thoughts from anyone on value?
    Should I look at refinishing and selling?, or is it safe to say it's not worth it and I may as well use it as an outdoor vase?

    If it is plaster, it won't hold up outside.
