if that label is on that vase it would be logical that that IS the maker - however, handgravyr refers to engraving and the item does not seem to be engraved. So could you please clarify that point.

Steve, why do you shout at us, please?
Pamela
Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Apologies for the misleading pictures- the label was for an earlier post to try and date that. The cased vase has no marks to indicate maker. regards Carolglass :-[

OK so the field is open. Considering the colour and the weight I suggest Polish.

Steve, Pamela is referring to your posting in all bold letters. Typing in bold or in CAPITALS is the internet equivalent of shouting, and some people find it an annoyance. Hope this helps. :)
