B & M:
While sorting out some of my boxes, I found this beautiful piece which I bought some time ago.

It stands about 5 inches high and has a snapped off pontil mark to the underside. There are some scratches to the underside but no signiature that I can make out. The nearest I can think of is Anthony Stern but I am not too familiar with his work and would have expected his pieces to be signed. If anyone has any more knowledge in this area or can offer any further suggestions I would be very grateful.

Thank you

Steven

Vase

There is also one on ebay finishing today, i do notice the pontil mark
is sort of 4 quarters. I would have thought it would be signed.but maybe
he wasnt happy with it?

Regards Andy

or will put link in if im allowed(moderators ??,thx, still learning).

There is a vase called grassy knoll, quite similar, you could prob
email him.

(i think it is likely a Stern piece)

One of my Norman Stuart Clarke vases also had 4 quarter pontil mark - but these have all been signed as well.  I wonder if this is a modern tool that is being used to create this pontil signature?  Adam?  Allen? any light to shed?
