This is a cobalt and gold footed vase with chinoiserie design and shape , having butterflies and ivy,

marked E.C, 1960 to 1970, valued at $75.

In ours marks database this EC mark is referenced as "pottery studio (EC) USA circa 1960 to 1970" but no history or

names are attributed.


Here are some helpful suggestions for selling on your own online; GoAntiques.com, Truegether.com, Mercari.com, Wanelo.com, decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Etsy.com, eBay, Pamono.com, and Chairish.com.
I will also list the most popular local online classifieds where the buyer picks up from you; Varagesale.com (local), and letgo.com (local), 5miles.com (local).Your local Facebook Marketplace online is a good place to sell locally without having to ship.
To have someone else do the work for you, you can go to invaluable.com, liveauctioneers.com, or auctionzip.com and search their directory for an
auction house near you and consign to them. For the Uk, selency.uk, loveantiques.com are good and for Canada, kijiji.com is a great site for selling.

I would love to work with you again. For the next item, use the "ask me a question" area and address the request with Hi RAREWARES (very important to write my name!).
If another expert answers, feel free to let them know you'd like to work with Rarewares.
