Hope you get this, new to all this
That's VV Karraresi (sometimes spelled with a C and most people mistake the letter v for the letter y).Karraresi was an Italian company that painted Asian decor. Their pieces are made in Calenzano Firenze (Florence, Italy) in the 1950's. They made transferware, painted pieces, Imari style, all with stickers on the bottom. I am sure yours fell off long ago (see photo).This vase has a value of $20 to $25.00.It is important for you to click the stars after you have read this answer, thank you!
