Customer Question

I have a Wedgewood lustre vase 8.5" high, 3" across the base, 2.5" across the lip which flares out from a narrower neck above a tear drop shaped body. Deep pink/purpley lustre glaze decorated with the firbolg pattern in gold. On the base there is printed a two handled amphora(?) and WEDGEWOOD ENGLAND all in gold. In side the lip which has a gold rim, it is mother of pearl lustre with 3 swimming dolphins picked out in gold and green.
I know this piece to be at least 90 years old having inherited it from my grandmother. It's condition is perfect.
I would appreciate some idea of it's value.
