    This reminds me of the fine Antique vases of the Japanese fine pottery makers. This is light and finely constructed from a master pottery maker. This is signed MORCRAY? MORCRAL?
    The story goes...I got this at SA for $1.99 today while returning for a store credit.

    Thank you Kevin and Thomas for helping me find the answer!!!

      can anyone help me figure out the maker of the vase? XO
    7. lundy lundy, 8 years ago
      yes ill help you ,
    8. Thoscahaba Thoscahaba, 8 years ago
      Does it say morecrap?
    9. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 8 years ago
      Thomas, what do you think of MORECRAFT?
    10. Thoscahaba Thoscahaba, 8 years ago
      Maybe so . It could be. Can you tell the last letter at all?
    11. Thoscahaba Thoscahaba, 8 years ago
      It's "morecra" something
    12. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 8 years ago
      Thomas, I can only make out L or Y......or I? Who ever made this vase was an true expert. I have seen this workmanship in fine Asian Ceramic pottery...its truly feather light and perfect.
    13. Thoscahaba Thoscahaba, 8 years ago
      I don't doubt it's a work of art. Do you think it's Asian for export market? It certainty has that look and I would trust your sense of feel.
    14. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 8 years ago
      Thomas, I think this was export from maybe Japan or China? Maybe part of a set of sake cups? Its handmade and old. The feel I get is 1940's-50's? I maybe wrong....the feel and to touch the vase..plus the finish. Its really nice!
    15. Thoscahaba Thoscahaba, 8 years ago
      It's almost a reminds me of a bottle vase except the bottom is larger. You can tell the influence. The capital M indicates by larger case a name, or title.
    16. Thoscahaba Thoscahaba, 8 years ago
      Chinese bottle vase. I'm not familiar with Korean and southeast Asian ceramics.
    17. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 8 years ago
      Thomas, I think you are correct!!! I think this is interesting to find out!
    18. Thoscahaba Thoscahaba, 8 years ago
      Lee don't say old and mention the 1950's.
    19. Thoscahaba Thoscahaba, 8 years ago
      The potter wrote well in English case so maybe it's Singapore, Hong Kong ?
    20. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 8 years ago
      Thomas...or English pottery?
    21. Thoscahaba Thoscahaba, 8 years ago
      I doubt I helped any in the discover. Honestly though that's the part I enjoy.
    22. Thoscahaba Thoscahaba, 8 years ago
      It could be . I have seen that shape before in a small Newcombe piece. The finish was matte blue. If I remember correctly.
    23. Thoscahaba Thoscahaba, 8 years ago
      Oops Newcomb autocorrect got me
    24. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 8 years ago
      Thomas, could this be from the same company?
    25. vetraio50 vetraio50, 8 years ago
      Possibilities are Morecrab, Morecraf, Morecral, Morecrat & Morecray.

      Google search with inverted commas ....... vase "Morecraf" etc. yielded nothing.
      The inverted commas signal that the term must be in results.

      Morecraf looks like a possibility too!


      Four stilt marks is unusual I think.
    26. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 8 years ago
      Kevin, do you think this is from a small pottery company? The "M" looks familiar....
    27. vetraio50 vetraio50, 8 years ago
      Arts and Crafts piece. Nice lustre glaze. We call them drip glazes here. How big is it? a Miniature? It would be more difficult to do a smaller version I think. It might be a student in an Arts and Crafts School? Just playing around with ideas. Here in Australia there was a School in Queensland called the Harvey School. A series of pottery exercises were created by Lewis J Harvey that his students completed in an evening college set up. They got progressively difficult. The students work is keenly collected these days - early twentieth century pieces.

    28. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 8 years ago
      Kevin, it measures just under 6 inches....so is this new or old? The glaze is not what I have seen in student pieces...but you are more knowledgeable in this area...
    29. vetraio50 vetraio50, 8 years ago
      I would say early twentieth century. Arts and Crafts.
    30. Thoscahaba Thoscahaba, 8 years ago
      No it's not Newcomb . Kevin sounds like the knowledgable one.
    31. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 8 years ago
      Thomas, thank you for all your help...every little bit counts :)))
    32. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 8 years ago
      Nadia, XOXOXO
    33. Thoscahaba Thoscahaba, 8 years ago
      Lee Did you discovery anything more?
    34. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 8 years ago
      Thomas, no..not after Kevin said it was Arts and Crafts....I think he is correct...the name does not pull anything up.... :(
    35. Thoscahaba Thoscahaba, 8 years ago
      You never know with artists. I just appreciate them, I may never understand them. It's beautiful .
    36. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 8 years ago
      Thomas, thank you ...I thought so too...and whoever made this was a very good one!!!
    37. cogito cogito, 8 years ago
      I'm inclined to go with Vetraio50. It has many Arts & Crafts features, and I doubt something for Asian export would have been labeled as such or have kiln/stilt marks.
