Nice vase.
I believe it is Japanese and genuine silver. Probably from the early 20th century.
Value would be dependent on who the maker was.
I do hope someone here can translate it for you.

I am pleased that Mr I. NAGY has responded.
Very famous department store. Worth looking into them. Fascinating history.
The only downside to your vase is that it is missing its original tomobako (wood box). W
In light of your post I have also posted one. Perhaps Mr Nagy can help me with a translation.
Hope you enjoy your vase. It's a beautiful example.
Regards,
Mark

The other side of the tomobako.
