Two Chinese Vases - Age and Value? - red caligraphy markings (not red seal, but open)
Two Chinese Vases - Age and Value? - red caligraphy markings (not red seal, but open):- These are two Chinese vases given to George Ulmer before the turn of the century in Miles City Montana by a family, from china who came to work on the railroad and stayed and worked for the Ulmer family. Have they any significance in terms of a dynasty or age?

Many thanks for your carefully put together photos.
I try to help where I can but Chinese wares are way out of my own depth of knowledge - I am no expert, I just try to help point people in the right direction wherever possible.
By the way when you said "turn of the century" you didn't say which century, but if 19th/20th Century, I feel you need an expert antique china appraisal urgently as modern replicas are quite common so it could be either. Also with Chinese vases, it might easily be the turn of the 18th/19th centuries or earlier, as their traditions in porcelain making go back so far.
If antique, almost all of the Chinese items I have sent to the expert team of this nature have had a very nice value to them (we're not talking Ming, but very nice for the average person). Modern reproductions have less value, but are still decorative.
Use my service as it is the most reliable, safe, value for money and accurate online. I work only with international auctioneer experts ('Roadshow' types). Other services of equal merit charge minumim $50 for each item and also require money upfront, and often membership fees on top with other hidden charges. Otherwise they tend to be inferior impersonal automated computer services which also demand money upfront.My vintage and antique china values page ...more
Hope this helps.
