Hello there, I was wondering if anybody knows anything at all about these 3 pieces of pottery?! I really haven't a clue. The first piece seems to be like a flower frog/vase, very unusual shape, decorated naively with glasses/bottles etc. Second piece has the same design, could be an ashtray? Very unusual shape again, mysterious letter "X" randomly there. Third piece bright yellow with naive images of TVs etc no idea what it would be used for. Any help at all would be appreciated even guesses! Many thanks in advance!

    Hello ho2cultcha, I'm not too sure how to add another picture? But the bases are plain unglazed white with no markings on the two white pieces whilst the yellow is glazed and has the same continuous pattern as the piece itself.
