Hello Keith -  Ruth A. Forsythe again mate, page 12 (No. 48) - "8.5" vase mottled colours"  -  in other words Czechoslovakian and anywhere between 1916 and 1938, but looking at the 'Deco' design probably somewhere near 1930, and ten quid to a penny you will never discover the actual factory.
I know nothing of ebay, but I'm intrigued to hear that they are that common  -  why should that be I wonder. :)

As a book, the Ruth Forsythe has lots of lovely pictures, but that's about it.

How is the top finished? I think these things are probably appearing now because the current generation is getting rid of Granny's treasures.

Would appear to be ground then, Keith?  -  which I believe is what Christine was really after getting you to describe. :)   However, whilst I appreciate that Granny's bits and bobs are now hitting the market, still don't know why there should be as many as you say.   I'm certainly not seeing this reflected in the charity shops or b.s.  -  just the occasional one.  Although they are a bit 'kitch'(?) - they are cheerful and bright on a window sill.

They're the sort of thing the house clearance companies send to auction: they look like they might have a bit of value. If it's a ground rim, I think Chinese is unlikely. Why spend time and money grinding when a nice little automatic flaming unit (possibly fed by a human but maybe automatically) will rotate over the top just long enough to fire polish.
