    I found these two vases today, on the first day of Summer 6/21/2018, at a Concord, California Thrift Store! I didn't know who made it, but liked the way they looked, a little Art Deco, and with the nice color combination. After searching for vintage pottery vases, with no luck, I tried to figure the mark on the bottom, a crown over a W, and found the crown over WG mark of Wilhelm Goebel Pottery, and the time that this mark was used, between the 1920s-1939, but never was able to find any vases similar to these vintage, rare Wilhelm Goebel Pottery cream color vases, with red and black trim.
    The taller vase is 6 1/2" x 2 3/4" at the base, and the same across the top. The shorter wider vase is 5 1/2" x 3 1/8" at the base, and 4 3/8" across the top. They're both in very good condition, considering they could be 90 years old. :^D

    Thanks for looking, any information about these vases would be appreciated, and all questions, or comments are welcome! :^)

      Very nice art deco design/color on these vases Bill, is this the same Goebel that did some animal & cherub figurines, and was associated with Hummel

      Hi Jenni, yes it is, William Goebel, is that Goebel! :^D I haven't really researched it yet though, I have Hummel books, that don't have Goebel, but haven't gotten to my Goebel book, because I think it only has figurines, and Christmas items, not pieces like these. They're older, and rare I guess! Thank you for your comment, and the love too! :^)

      Thank you all for taking a look, and giving back some love for what you saw,
      bb2 was here, Karen, and AO too, Brian and Kevin also, much appreciation to all of you! :^)

      I'm adding this, to clarify, what I wrote in my description, also it's "Wilhelm", not William Goebel! I'll change my title! :^D
      This is from "The Goebel King" An Introduction to Goebel Collecting :
      WG for Wilhelm Goebel, the founder of the company.
      The wide crown was used from 1923 to 1950 [this is what my vases have] and is called TMK 1 by Hummel collectors as this is the earliest mark a Hummel can be found in. The first Hummel was produced in 1935. This mark is found quite often, both incised into the bottom of the item or sometimes stamped or both ways on the same piece. When both ways are present, the piece is called a double crown. Most of the items made during this period were functional pieces such as reamers, creamers, salt and pepper sets, vases, planters and on and on. However, the crown will be found on half dolls and many series of figurines especially of the religious type.
      I hope this helps! :^)
