    This heavily glazed art pottery vase is 9" high by 11" wide.
    there is an impressed signature which I am at a loss to decipher.
    if anyone has a clue or recognizes this mark, please let me know.
    Obtained from an estate of a woman who collected pottery for ikebana flower arranging, lived in Japan during the 1950's & worked with Epcot in planning, design & judging their annual flower shows.
    that is all the clues i have! great day,
    barbara

    2. Girlietrader Girlietrader, 7 years ago
      I agree-when u have a piece of pottery this fine-u want to kno as much as you can about it-it could be an aliens' makers mark!
    3. getthatmonkeyoutofme getthatmonkeyoutofme, 7 years ago
      I believe i have a vase with the same mark...
    4. Girlietrader Girlietrader, 7 years ago
      Really - u wanna compare notes? give me any hints-this is really a big mystery to me.
      what shape is ur vase?
    5. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 7 years ago
      Does it say 'Merida'? that's a town in the Yucatan, Mexico.
    6. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 7 years ago
      Carlos Merida?!! if it is, and it kind of looks like his signature... then you have an amazing treasure here. he was a friend of my family's and we stayed w/ his family in guatemala once and once in mexico too.

      No my signature is different...
    9. Girlietrader Girlietrader, 7 years ago
      hello all-check & his signature is nothing like this one-the impressed mark on my vase seems to start with a W but maybe an M then i see an 8-
      oh my-this is one wild goose chase!
    10. Girlietrader Girlietrader, 5 years ago
      hello-cannot believe that i listed this over 2 years ago-still wondering about the signature. it is a wonderful piece of heavy glazed pottery. pl let me kno if u kno!
    11. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 5 years ago
      can you get a better pic of the signature - straight on? maybe w/ some cinnamon or corn starch stuffed in there?
    12. Girlietrader Girlietrader, 5 years ago
      hello ho2cultcha
      well, i tried ground nutmeg and baking powder-seems that the mystery has deepened. as u can see fr orig pict, the signature stamp is incised so i am not sure if the different methods have helped w/identity or not. Once again, any info will be greatly appreciated. I'm usually good at signatures, this one has been a puzzle. thx, barbara
