I don't recognize the vase. It could be made anywhere, but I suspect Chinese -- could definitely be wrong here!

Dan:

It doesn't look like Murano to me. What interests me is the number of bidders this attracted. You were not alone. I've seen some very nice Murano, FT "Starry Nights," for example, go for much less than this , or attract no bidders. Do the bidders on this piece know something I don't?

I thought the same thing when I saw the vase, David. I checked the other offerings of the sellers and saw they were mainly clothes. I'll have to write the seller to see if there is a trick for getting such a good price for the vase... Then maybe it is something good that I just don't recognize.

Anita: If I remember, it was a charity for members of the armed forces. I'll avoid making any suggestions about how you might compete with that.

Don't forget the base picture. Style looks Czech but there looks to be too many colours

It's a wonderful charity. It makes me wish the vase had done even better.

Bradbury, looking forward to the pictures. Maybe we'll be able to figure out who might have made the vase.

I'd like to see better pictures, too. I agree with Christine that it's worth considering Czech. I had thought about suggesting it originally, but the photo isn't clear enough (and I was too tentative). You might ask the moderator to change the subject line. If it includes "Czech?" I'm sure Jindrich will have a look.

Good luck.

That top treatment is very reminiscent of Japanese pieces.
