My Grandmother's vase

My maternal grandmother, Lillian was a very stylish woman. She always dressed impeccably. Her father was an artist, named Lachlan Browne and her mother a Scottish lady who worked as a housekeeper at The Hydro Majestic at Meadlowbath in the Blue mountains of Sydney. Her employers were the Foys a wealthy family that owned a store called Marc Foys in Sydney. I used to love visiting my grandmother, (nanna). She had some lovely things. One I have inherited is a beautiful vase. There were two of them. My aunt has the other.

Here is a picture of my nanna and pops wedding circa 1920 and the vase in question.
