Q         I have a large collection of lady head vases I want to sell. How should I go about selling them?

A         Lady head vases are figural vases showing a pretty woman from the shoulders up. Most were made in Japan or the United States and were used by florists in the 1950s and ’60s. They were a popular collectible in the ’70s and ’80s but interest has waned. Today they sell for a wide variety of prices, from $25 or less to over $100. Vases portraying Jacqueline Kennedy or those with imitation jewelry or other accessories usually sell for the highest prices. You can check prices online but expect to get half what they are selling for. If you want to sell the whole collection, you might be able to find someone at a flea market or mall booth who will buy them.
