Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
At your convenience, please send photos. A full image with the design and a clear, in-focus close-up of the mark would be ideal.
When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.
When evaluating an item, photos are essential to helping me come to a correct assessment.
There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos:

I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.
Sincerely,
Nora

Hi Maria~
I received your images and thank you for your patience.
The mark on your vase with 6 dots to the left, 6 to the right and 1 dot below the circle indicates that your handled ewer vase was produced by Royal Worcester in England in 1904.
On today’s market, your Edwardian era English china handled ewer vase would sell for an average high of 75GBP - 100GBP. The suggested insurance or replacement value is 200GBP.
