    Relatively large dark green vase with a lovely drip glaze. Unfortunately it is not marked, but I believe it could be German – any opinions, fellow CW members? The seller was certain it was made by Michael Andersen, but I am sure it isn’t – Michael Andersen vases from this period are marked, if not with either ‘Michael Andersen’ or ‘MA&S’, then at least with a number, and, unlike this vase, they are always glazed on the bottom as well.

    Follow-up: Leafing through a two-volume book about Julius Paul & Sohn looking for another unidentified vase, I came across this vase (or at least a very similar one; same shape, almost the same size (mine is 0.5 cm smaller) and type of glaze; only the bottom seemed different). Categorized as F55, size 1, produced 1920-1935, so I think I can safely say it's German and very likely Julius Paul & Sohn! The pottery was founded 1893 in Bunzlau (the Germany, now Poland) and production ceased 1945.

    Height: 19.2 cm / 7.5 in; diameter 12.5 cm / 5 in.

      Yes, I too thought of Carl Fischer/BKW, so perhaps... And thanks, VioletOrange!

      Follow-up - I am now fairly sure that this was produced at Julius Paul & Sohn in Bunzlau!
