    I have this beautiful 5 1/2" high ART POTTERY VASE with a small lipped mouth and a bulbous body in a rich dark rouge glaze with wonderful stylized lotus designs in shades of blue, green, white and olive glazes with what appears to be a wax resist outline revealing the bare pottery surface around the flowers as well as a band that completely encircles the vase just below the decoration.

    It has an unidentifed impressed mark underfoot with what appears to be a Tree or a leaf in an 'oval'. I thought it may be Austrian or German, circa 1900-1930's but I haven't been able to actually identify the maker or the time frame. If anyone has any information I would be most grateful. Thanks in advance.

      That Mark might be Japanese too I suppose.

      i think that this is an Awaji mark, but not positive. i've seen it before though.

      Thank you for your reply. I tried to take a better photograph of the mark and have posted it but it is still not all that clear because of the glaze. I checked out the Awaji pottery and marks but what I found on line doesn't really resemble this one. I am hopeful that the mystery will be solved however.
