Known in Carnival as the Towers Vase, this is possibly a Matthew Turnbull piece.  Davidson's subsequent production of this item was from 1961 (info from Chris & Val Stewart's website, note they state this mould was known as M.T.1. and was possibly a Turnbull original)

You can see the piece on the Stewart's website on this page.
