    I have a number of these bark textured vases, and although I don't know who produced them I do know they are Japanese.
    They have been seen with My Lady stickers, but that's meaningless really!

    They are quite well made with the heavily textured sides and occasional wood knots. All nicely cased with a hot finished rim, and the moulded base appears to have been given a hot finish also.

    So here are two parallel vase, one yellow and one red, and an orange in a tapered form.
    All are about 25cm tall.
