Question by joey s: where can i find the value of an antique crystal vase?
i know it is crystal or lead crystal. and i know it is truly an antique because i am 40 now and i always remember it placed on there dining room table for holiday dinners since i was a child. i inherited it from my grandma who said it was a wedding present from her parents who got it as a wedding present themselves. it has no manufacturer markings on it. i have looked all over on the internet and cant find anything that looks similar. i am just wondering if anyone can help me as to find out if it is very valuable. i know it is hand cut on the exterior. im not smart on antiques but i can spot hand cut crystal. even if i snap my finger on the base of it which is quite thick it makes a very prominent ringing tone. any help would be appreciated. its 10 and 1/4 tall and 3 and 3/8 inches at the base. i can email a picture if anyone knows much about this. im going to sell it and i want true market value.
to the first person who answered, no i dont want to sell it but i have been unemployed for a few months now. sure i want to keep it but i need to take care of my family first. sure i could sell our car. but i cant drive an antique crystal vase to work.

I can see that you would like to know about it, but do you really want to sell it? It sounds like it is a family heirloom.
