I am clearing a deceased property and have an Arthur vase

This answer was rated:

Hi there. I am clearing a deceased property and have an Arthur Wood vase with the markings that LOOK like 20 20.U, any thoughts?
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.
Customer: I have no idea, it looks a bit art deco with pink, yellow and purple flowers with a fluted top rim in silver colouring.
JA: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: Some of the painted glazing on the yellow flowers in particular have missing patches and overall the glaze is cracked with age, but otherwise ok. It has the full Arthur Wood crest with those markings on the base
