I think that is about all you can say. A vase in the style of Waistel Cooper.

I can't think that he could have forgotten to mark it, as unlike a small seal that has to be impressed at a certain time, his mark was painted on and could even be done after firing.

For example John Maltby uses a felt tip marker before dispatch.

The foot doesn't look quite right and I forgot that I have one here on the shelf next to me.

It and one that I have just found on the internet both have the "mottled" finish like the areas that can be seem when standing whereas your vase doesn't.

There is a similarly shaped piece in a charity shop with dried flowers stuck in it. It has a splash of peeling glaze near the base which is what keeps putting me off from buying it.

The glaze round the rim is very 70s.

That bluish glaze,the flared top,the the matt finish,all remind me of Derek Davis.

MMm , never thought about that , I have had a few Davis pots and yes the glaze could be like his , I think this is a dolomite glaze looking at old bonham catalogue pictures, but the form is not one that can be pinned down to one potter , so many did the Rie, Cooper, Coper style form , probably hundreds of them in fact .
