Can anyone help me with this burial urn?

Post by Sublimer » Nov 15, 2016 6:22 pm

Hi- I was hoping someone might know something about this urn/vase. My father's business partner was from China & he gave what he called a "burial urn" to my father as a gift. The story was that it was "smuggled out" (whatever that means) and it's supposedly old and valuable but I can't find anything about it and his partner has since passed away and my father doesn't know anything else about it. It doesn't have any markings that I can find. I can't even tell what it's made of! Is it stone? One final wrinkle: my father's also having memory problems, so he's not completely sure that this is the burial urn but he thinks it is (he has a lot of vases and art pieces from all over asia). Any help would be great, thanks!
