Rectangular Vase in Need of Repair

I bought this large rectangular vase from a UK auction before I realized what "AF" in the description meant. It means "as found", and in auction speak usually means with damage. In this case, it meant heavy damage.

The vase is about 8.825 inches tall and 2.625 inches wide on each side. There are several chips in the surface and lots of cracks along the sides. Someone has tried to repair the vase, as there is evidence of glue on the inside. I'm sure it can be restored, but will not be cheap. I received three quotes, and each exceeded the vase's value so I'm debating whether to toss it or give it to someone who wants to try to repair it.

Anyone interested?
