    Mystery Solved!!

    PINECROFT POTTERY. Says on the Bottom:

    PINECROFT
    CANADA
    HANDMADE

    Think this is an Early piece!!

    Thanks to icollectglass for helping me solve this mystery!!

    ========== UPDATE JULY 29, 2016 =======
    CONTACTED BRENDA -- A RELATIVE As of Today, Pinecroft is owned and operated by BRENDA SMITH (nee Caverly - a niece/original owner's granddaughter) and her husband Paul. Brenda joined Pinecroft in 1972. This is what she said about my piece:

    """"The vase is a piece made by my uncle, James Clennell in the early 1950's. Interestingly enough he was an employee of the Medalta potteries in the 30's and 40's in Medicine Hat Alberts and also a Rover Scout who took many scouts camping........Enjoy the vase, it is very unique!''''' [ End of Quote by BRENDA ]
