Remember this vase. It is the only one like it in the world. It is stolen merchandise. The story behind how this vase was taken is terrible and the crud that did it needs to be nailed. The vase is very large for a Yabu piece, standing 12 3/8 inches tall. If it were not stolen Merchandise it would have a value of $50,000-$100,000. It was stolen in 2007 from a Doctor in Argentina and a case has been filed with Interpol. It is registered as stolen along with very descriptive images, Case #10451/05. If you buy this vase you will have it taken away. If you see this vase contact Interpol at the justice.gov/usncb/ website. The vase was recently being marketed in the US and Canada. It is suspected to be in the Southeast US in the possession of a antiques dealer that does not specialize in Japanese Antiques. The photos seen here are recent and were taken by the person now in possession of this stolen treasure.
