Hi, a friend of mine asked me what the words mean on this box? Does anyone know? Thanks! - Mike

Actually, your 1st pic is upside down. :)
It is written in cursive & is a bit hard to make out,
but I do believe the words are "银彩瓶"...
Which literally translate to "silver colored vase"

Unfortunately, the words in your 2nd pic are too cursive for me to make out what they are... :(

Cannot make them out either - although I'm not great with with it...

Sorry!

Maybe ask the shop for the translation?

OMG I didn't realize the first pic was upside down! I'll fix that asap.

Thanks so much for the translation!

Well this one is the makers name...I'll attempt to put the correct characters to it! The middle one is giving a problem! I think the first and last is Wu Yao, but i need to verify with my wife!

Thank you for your effort! :D Now I know why those letters were cursive, they were someone's name!

Not just someone, I believe the name is that of the manufacturer and maybe quite respected in the arts, maybe antique!

Wow thank you very much, I wonder who the manufacturer is? This may be worth a LOT of money!
