    This vase is driving me crazy as I don't know what it is, so I really hope someone can dig up some information that could identify it! It is clearly marked, but nothing useful has turned up in my searches so far (except a lot of pictures of Capri in Italy!).

    The vase has a shape which to me indicates a date around 1920 and is decorated with an irresistible blue and beige drip glaze (that's why I bought it!). Underneath it is clearly marked 'Capri' and stamped with the number 9618 (difficult to make out in the picture). Height: 20 cm. I assume it's European - what do you pottery experts think?

    I bought this vase on one of our big antiques fairs from a guy who had brought it along several times on various markets, so I was able to get it for a very resasonable price, when I pointed out that he must be tired of packing and unpacking that vase!

      I think Capri is a California Pottery mark, let me check.

      This doesn't show the hallmarks, though, let me see if I can find them elsewhere.

      Looks like there's a McCoy Capri line as well:

      Well it appears there's quite a lot of Capri around, lol:

      Very pretty!

      Thanks, everyone. I did come across the American Capri line, but I think my vase looks very different in style, so that's why I am not sure that it's McCoy. Did they make pottery with this type of glaze?
    10. art.pottery, 4 years ago
      Not McCoy. I agree it's European, based on the look of the numbering.
    11. jensen jensen, 4 years ago
      Thanks, art.pottery. Belgian, maybe? And thanks for the loves everyone!

      I saw a line from Holland that was Capri, but they didn't show the hallmark. The name Capri is apparently very common, matching the font style may be the key in IDing this piece.
