This vintage art vase is from Italy. It is 16 1/2" tall and is 15 1/2" in diameter at it's widest point. The base has a black Crown N mark under the glaze. T are no chips, cracks or scratches to mar the hand painted surface. It was used as a center piece and is so elegant under strong light. It would be a wonderful addition to any special setting. The second picture includes 2 side floral capodimonte baskets. They are a second auction and are not included in this listing. I have separated them to meet the needs of the most buyers. If you buy both the vase and baskets I will reduce the overall shipping of the two listings. I have a policy of charging only for the actual shipping expense. No added fees are part of this listing. Your item will be shipped promptly and with great care. (See my feedback) As with so many Ebay sellers I encourage the use of Paypal to speed the completion of your transaction.
