I have 2- tall blue vases which have Imperi Ware TAMS England

Customer Question

Hi, I have 2- tall blue vases which have Imperi Ware TAMS England No 30 & 35 on the bottom. They look to be hand painted both slightly different with birds, flowers & gold on them. I know they must be at least 65yrs old. Are they of any value?

Hello, Your two English Staffordshire vases were made by Tams a company founded in Longton, Stoke-on-Trent by John Tams in the 1870s. The mark you mention on yours dates your vases to after 1930. Depending on the height and condition of your vases, they sell for $15 - $40 each on today's market. Please take a moment to leave a rating by clicking the stars.
