Signature help needed.
« on: September 24, 2007, 12:39:59 PM »
Thanks in advance if anyone can help me with this signature. I think the year is 1943. This vase is so clear...pure? it looks like its a very very pale blue. It is 7.5cm high, 7cm across one side, 7.5cm the other side. Heavy with polished smooth base.

Hi Trudy,
The numbering will be a code. I don't think that they dated their pieces. Hopefully Ivo or Bill Geary will be able to give you some better information.
