Hi, looks a bit Italian / Empoli to be, but hard to say for certain.  A base shot and close up of how the rim is finished might help someone to ID.

Thanks, but by base shot I mean the underneath of the vase.  Sometimes the way it is finished can help to indicate the maker, for instance if it has a "pontil mark", and what kind, whether it is rough or smoothly polished etc.  Chances are there won't be anything there to help us, but you never know. :)

Thanks for the pics.  Unfortunately there are no obvious signs as to who the maker is though.  I would still lean towards the Empoli region of Italy, but there are other possibilities, such as Far Eastern, or your home country of Poland.  Maybe someone else can narrow it down.

Hi there,

My first impression, before I noticed you're from Poland, is that the vase is Polish... 1970s or 80s, perhaps Tarnowiec?
