    Greetings all. I have here a true mystery in this beautifully decorated enameled copper vase(?) purchased a few months ago. I remain at a dead-end after months of trying to identify the artist's mark found on the base, so unsure of the correct category. The container has a neatly rolled rim and its hand-painted intricate artwork is rendered in rich gold and blue, along with touches of white and grey, finished in what appears to be a clear coat. I am hoping that someone here in the Community may be familiar with the mark and/or the artist's work. Any leads provided would be greatly appreciated.
    Height: 5½"
    Opening: 4?"
    Widest Point: 5¾"
    Base 4?"

      Hello Golgatha and thank you. Yes, I can see some elements of its design which are similar, others maybe not so much, but of course there remains a universe of such objects. And I am still poring over images, so nothing is ruled out. I was initially certain that its design, shape, and maker's mark would make identification a breeze, but have since found nothing that shouts out with certainty, "This is it!"
