Hi Roy,
Sorry this isn't constructive, but it will help you to knock one factory from the many off - it isn't Isle of Wight in my opinion. The colours are wrong and this shape wasn't a factory shape. I doubt it is a friggery thing either, for the first reason and due to its size.
Good luck!
Mark

While we're shortening the list of contenders, I think you can strike off the Belgian manufacturers (Jemeppe) who specialised in Berluzes (=large long necked floor vase) because the flaring shape of the neck is wrong.

The colour, meanwhile, suggests Empoli or contemporary Chinese.

Thanks for replies and help , I think I will put it to one side and see if I can narrow down the list of possibilities over the coming weeks
