Cloisonné Vase with cranes

Posted this on Asian Art, hoping it's Ming Dynasty....

... not really, but it does look old, wouldn't you say?

Thanks Keith, I didn't know you were knowledgeable about cloisonne as well.

My mum keep pestering me on it and normally i wouldn't ask, any ideas of value of such an item? Looking on Ebay it's kind of hit or miss on value which i don't understand, but this pink coloured background seems to appeal.

Am i right in assuming that it's a copper alloy and it's turned green due to oxidisation on the inside, or is that part of the enamel colour?

Prices on ebay are always dodgy, good cloisonne fetches high prices, they need to be in perfect condition though. I think your's in what they call 'goldstone' the metal used is usually copper or brass type alloys the better ones are silver. I've seen similar vases with asking prices between £40 - £100, sometimes more. Started collecting cloisonne a long time back along with Satsuma but the prices are to high now, here's a few of mine... ;D ;D
