Unknown Vase - 'N' under Crown
(Eloy, AZ. United States)
This item belongs to my mother-in-law and she has had it in her possession for over 36 years. It was left behind in an apartment that my mother-in-law cleaned after the tenent moved out, when she was a manager there. It was found wrap in an old foam pad in the closet. We think it is a vase, but not sure. It measures 10 inches tall, 1 and 1/2 inches wide at the top, and 5 inches wide at the base. It has 3D flowers and leaves around it. It has 3 legs at the base of the item. The water mark on the bottom is a 5 point crown with a capital N under the crown. Under both of those is writing that says dresden. Please tell me anything about this item, where it was made, how much it is worth, what it is.

The forum Help Elf says:-
Fairly typical Dresden style from the post war Soviet period post the destruction. Nothing particularly to commend it in my view. Not old enough to be collectible and somewhat out of fashion to-boot. The N mark refers to the florid Italian Capodimonte styling. Likely made in Thuringia - not Dresden itself.
