What's it worth? Appraisal of antique Oriental vase

Art asks:

What can you tell me about this vase and it’s value?

AW says: This is a Japanese vase circa 1900-20.  It appears to have a mark that includes “Dai Nippon” in Japanese characters  reflecting the nationalism of that period.

Of course it’s hand painted, and very well done at that. Birds and nature were a common theme for Japanese art in this period.

Retail value: $95-$125

Wholesale value: $50-$75
