The bottom of this elegant vase is marked IOAG, a trademark featuring a knight with two swords, and a crest reading Warwick and D.1, which is handwritten in red. The top is rimmed in gold. Does it have any value?

Bouquet No. 2 is the style name of your twig-handled herons-portrait vase, which stands 10 1/2 inches tall and was made by Warwick China Company, in Wheeling, W. Va. An example identical to the one you own sold on eBay for $77.20, plus $10 for shipping. That final price of close to $90 is below book price (that is, the value found in a printed antiques and collectibles price guide for the identical vase). Book value is around $175. You might be able to get between $100 and $125.
