European Studio Vase?

Post by Marcusborra on August 6th 2015, 6:15 pm

Could you please help me to decipher the name of this modern looking studio vase with an incised signature. Don't know which country it comes from.

Height: 18cm

That's probably it Brin allowing for the Greek alphabet............ so from the Greek island of Kefalonia (Cephalonia)?

The writing on the base of this vase does appear to be Greek. Modern North European style studio pottery is not prolific in Greece. There is a lot of ancient Greek Style Pottery depicting scenes of heroic Greek historical images but nothing like this item. The decoration on this vase is fairly unusual in Greece and I believe it should be attributed to a named pottery eventually.

I've had that problem too, searching for Greek studio pottery; you just get the classical pottery in Google. But there are studio potters out there; hopefully it'll be IDed eventually
