    Decided to brave the cold today. Only two degrees despite the blue skies and sun and go to the Oberlin GW. Came home with a pair (for once) of a very "deco" looking pillow vases. I love the form (kind of like giant M&M's) and the staggered pillars that hold then upright. They are highlighted with an Asian figure done in gold on each side. Not sure of the date, and no marks either. The bisque bottoms look old like the 40's but they could be later. In nice shape too. No chips or cracks just some minor wear to the glazed edges by the figures. -Mike-

    NOTE: Many Thanks to Savoychina1 for IDing these for me.

      Thank you so much for the info Savoychina1 :) ... I probably never would have figured that out. I assumed they were just "occupied" Japan imports missing their labels or American bisque. This is much better news ! -Mike-
