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!
