I promised I would post a reply when an appraisal from Christie's came back on the piece below:

Here's what she had to say:

    "Thank you for your email and photos of your silver vase. The hallmarks on the vase stumped me for awhile, but I believe they must be from Hanau, Germany, late 19th/early 20th century. This town specialized in making silver in historical-revival styles. The market for such a piece would be mostly for its decorative such, I believe your vase would fetch under $1,000 (which unfortunately falls beneath our consignment minimum for sale at Christie's)." looks as if labarbedor was correct in guessing it was German.
