Hi, thank you very much for your kind reply.
I have attached a pdf file showing mark on base of vase which is now surprisingly readable as Kronach?
The only other mark is a serial number of limited edition?
This is a vase made circa 1900 by Kronach/Rosenthal porcelain of Bavaria. This vase was designed by artist Adolph Oppel and is numbered as number 74 of 161 made. This vase has a value of $500.00 us dollars.
