Normally on the bottom of the vase, there should be some sort of marking to help us identify the face. If you can find these markings and add them here it would help so much. Otherwise, it is very hard to help you and identify the vase and the value of this vase.

You need to know who manufactured it. Look at the bottom for markings

It is quite lovely.

If there are no markings it will be challenging to determine a value. If you think it is over 100 years old, you could try taking it to an antique store and ask for assistance to value for insurance purposes. They may be able to give you info and a value. One of the challenges of cases is telling real from reproductions. This usually takes a very skilled expert, who are often hard to find.

Once you id it and set a value, selling an item like this online is a nightmare as it is extremely fragile and the weight makes shipping costs outrageous. You are better off selling locally like through an antique store, auction house or consignment store. If it is new and has little value, you could do Craig's list or Facebook marketplace.

Let me know about the markings and then we can chat about how to determine value. Thanks for sharing!

I was able to locate the exact shape/replica of your floor vase with information of antique seller who has it up for sale. The vase has measurements given and other pertinent information which will help you determine pricing. The only difference between the two vases are the patterns used. You can see an up close picture of the vase for comparison.

P.S. After contacting the antique dealer you might take some close up pictures of your vase and email them for further identification. His vase does not have any markings on the bottom.
