The vase was donated many years ago (we believe in the 1930s) by Harry and Ethel Coss. The story passed down among librarians was that it was something they acquired on a trip to China. But, recently we found out that the origin of the vase is really Japan. So, we aren't sure if the Coss's really went to China and bought a Japanese vase or if it was a trip to Japan.
