This is the second vase by the same unkonw maker we've got.
This vase shows a more geometric shape than the first floral one. In fact I see it very in the style of Van de Velde... It has a glossy finishing and is mounted on patinated bronze. The design on the mounting also shows shapes that reminds me of Belgian or Dutch Art Nouveau. It's a pretty recent add on to Carlos's colection and the seller really said nothing about it. So we've got a total mistery here. Just like the other vase is, this one's fully marked and, once again, unsigned, and bears no visible mark on the mounting.
A funny thing about this vase is that it could work fine without the bronze mounting, whereas the other one with the floral mounting, couldn't possibly work without it.
We do believe the the pottery work comes from the same potter, and probably the mountings would come from different workshops (just guessing here).
Do these images ring any bell for anyone???
