hello alinagreta  -  is it possible for you to take a closer more 'square on' picture of the signature (showing in the last picture)  -  this may (possibly) help with an identification :)

Looks to be "B.....  H..... 08".  Sorry I can't help more.

It would help if we knew where you lived (country) and where it was bought/acquired.

I really like the vase itself - lovely colour.

I think the whole thing says Bob Crooks First Glass - if you search on this GMB board using the search button above left (next to rules) you may find other signatures for this to compare.

I'd agree completely the sig. reads Bob Crooks First Glass, from the second image.  :rah:
This more than makes up for the slight disappointment of a couple of contemporary Chinese pieces (even though they're very nice) and an unidentifiable cut-to-clear red goblet.  :smg:
