Found this nice little English hand painted vase at the Oberlin GW out by the college. It's stamped "England" with a painted mark which I can't ID and another stamp that says "Moray" although it's not very clear. The number 29 (maybe the year?) is scratched on the bottom as well. The painting of Poppy flowers on the buff color body is different on both sides and has sort of a watercolor "art deco" look to it. It's a very thin and light ceramic and the glaze is soft. There are some areas were the finish has flaked away but there are no cracks or chips. I think it's kind of old maybe the 20's or the 30's. -Mike-

    Still can't find anything about them online except what Eye found. No info on a company , factory or any kind of date reference.
