A heavy French vase from Daum Frères of Nancy, France.
It has a great form for use with or without flowers.
The second photo shows the etched signature to the edge of this vase.
Can anyone help me with the date of this vase?
I think it might be post-war, but I am not sure.

    Not so far. I think the signature is much earlier than I had previously thought. When I bought it I thought it was from the fifties.

    Thanks again to ozmarty, BELLIN68 & scandinavian_pieces!

    Ciao BELLIN!
    I've just had another look at the vase and some of the net sites.
    The signature has four parts: Daum, the cross of Lorraine, Nancy and France. The France suggests a date after 1920. That's as far as I have got so far.

    Check this site out to an introduction to the history behind marks.
    It involves McKinley prior to his election as President, World War I, Protectionist Policy, the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Acts of 1930 and The Great Depression:
    What they say about pottery was relevant to all goods including glass.
