Camau? Lamau?
« on: August 08, 2006, 04:52:57 PM »
I have just acquired a vase - maybe 60s - simple lozenge form about ten inches high, mustard yellow with three royal blue 'slubs' running from lip to waist - thick clear base. Near base is a ground signature - could be Camau or Caman - or the C could be an L........any ideas? I am no expert at all so excuse my if this is very obvious.....Gwion

I can't figure your signature at all - it does look like Camau or Caman - but neither name is bringing up anything except a place in Vietnam and a Welsh cultural link!  :roll:

Thanks for looking anyway ... perhaps someone else recognises the name...oddly there is a slight grinder line also all around the vase just above half way, where the blue slubs stop - it's not definate enough for a decoration. In the yellow there is also a hidden, slightly spiral marbling, only visible with strong light through it.

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)
