A: A TYPICAL late Victorian vase, part of a set of three, made of porcelain porcelain [Ital. porcellana], white, hard, permanent, nonporous pottery having translucence which is resonant when struck. Porcelain was first made by the Chinese to withstand the great heat generated in certain parts of their kilns. or glass. I can't tell from the photograph, but it appears that the vase is missing its lid. With time, it will slowly increase in value. Currently worth at auction, complete with two smaller vases, pounds 100-pounds 200' on its own, with lid missing, pounds 30-pounds 50.
