I found this today. It appears to be vintage mid century, with a wonderful scratched/carved decoration.
The bottom and interior are shiny black, the decorated sides are also glazed. It has wonderful stout feet and a curious angular shape.
There's a mark on the bottom beneath the black glaze, only a hint of it can be seen, ( it looks like a Japanese Crest design ).
It measures approximatley 10 inches long, 5 1/4 inches wide.
Look familiar?
Thanks for looking, and for any information you may have to share.

    It's an ikebana pot, isn't it?
    A Japanese use of Deco, nice!
    Very Constance Spry!

    It is an Ikebana pot,.....why didn't that occur to me?
    Having that revealed to me I discovered that the mark is for the Yamasan company.
    Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
    and You, too, Bellin!
