Like the Womb, the vase can symbolize all that you associate with your feminine heritage. Its condition will reflect whether or not you have a good relationship with this part of your upbringing. As something of value that is also fragile - it can represent your sensitivity and feelings. You may dream of a broken vase when you are coming to terms with feminine influences that undermine your self esteem. If the vase is an heirloom - you are acknowledging these gifts. Since it is often displayed as something of beauty - it can suggest wanting to be appreciated.
