"Your very welcome! BTW - could it be a "MH" or "HM" instead? Also, I think LB is onto something with secessionist era, and weiner Werkstatte" or Possibly another German maker could be right also? Such a Good Mystery! Please…"

"No seem to the vases, i'm pretty sure they have been thrown from one piece of clay and the rose and leaf frieze decoration has been applied or press moulded"

"Bang on with the secessionist look to the mark, i thought Wiener Werkstätte possibly. I don't think the vases looks secessionist though but looking at Wiener Werkstätte vases, there's a definite similarity but it…"

"The maker's mark on the bottom has a secessionist look to it. I agree that the pottery definitely has a basalt quality. Are there any mold seams on the polished body of the vase? I see a seam within the rose border, but it doesn't appear…"

"Hi Vicki. Thanks so much for looking. I've googled them all. I'm certain somebody will know. The glaze does seem to come off where it is cleaned but it is a black body. I'm sure it is the same as wedgwood basalt ware but obviously not…"

"My ref book, Lehner's US Marks, doesn't show the mark in either "W" or "H". Book written in 1988. I suspect that your vases are modern made after 1988.  Art Deco design doesn't mean it was made then. 47 in a…"

Help Identity these Art Deco Pottery Vases

Just bought this pair of vases. They struck a note with me and i had a hunch they may be quite good. Very strong Deco design with a stylish stamp underneath. I can't find the mark and i'm hoping somebody may recognise it. Possibly American as it doesn't show in Godden's guide. Soft paste body and hence they have a few chips and scratches. The mark is a W under an H with co at the bottom and 47 stamped on it as well. They also have some kind of finish on them that gives them a stoneware finish…See More

"Simone, the painting, on the scene(s), what is your opinion on that? Underglaze, cold paint?. The more I look, the more I think French Faience?? Or.. could it be polychrome?"

"I agree, most are a bit snooty, when it comes to auction houses, ugg. Still it is a "Monumental Show piece, Jardiniere" or similar. Where did you find it? Do you think it may be a special order/commissioned piece, perhaps for a theatre?"
