To Dump or not to Dump

When I was young, living in rural Texas, my father went to the local dump to get rid of leftovers from the prior owners. While there he stumbled upon this treasure. I am not sure if it is a vase or urn but it has the wonderful mark on the bottom of Nippon from Japan.  I have tried through my life to find out what it is worth. It is hand-painted and gold jeweled. Every person I have taken it to for an appraisal won’t give me an amount but they want to purchase it cheap which makes me believe I should hold onto it.  It has now become a family treasure that I can’t part with.  It is a beautiful piece of artwork that we don’t see a lot these days.  Please email me if you have any insights.
