hi thanks for the feed back...apologies for my late reply!

Hi kunst, on your advice, I searched for "Two Faces" and indeed did find a couple of web sites with the same image.... so many thanks for that! Thinking about it, it was an obvious search choic...
thanks vetraio! the framing cost me a fortune...but it was worth it! paul
p.s the colours suggest, to me, it was made in the 1960s... Indeed, some websites say that the factory in Austria was opened in the 1960s...and some say in the 1970s...
Hi This is the information I have on the reference number from a book I have: "1507 Handled Vase 27/29 Carstens Tönnieshof 1963" the "1507" is the pattern number, followed by either 27 or ...

Hi Solved it! It is a copy of a "Hatherley Lattistep". Patented in the UK in 1882 and 1883 in the USA. The USA patent expired in about 1900 so I guess it was made just after that ..patent copi...

Hi It looks like a "fat lava" type of finish on it... meaning (I think) no earlier than mid 1950s... they started off first in West Germany... If it is Fata lava, the colours look more lte 60s/...
