Hi and welcome to the board. Could you add photos of your vase please, ideally showing side view and a shot of the base/pontil as well? Many thanks.

Hi welcome to the board. You need to resize you picture in whatever programme you use to open your photographs, it's usually under edit, and if you choose 500 pixels for your longest dimension, you should be about right

Hi Kieran,
try this link for a Guernsey Paperweight on ebay,

Have a look of photo of base, does it look similar?
