Anyone recognise this vase? Its pattern reminds me of a bear but I'm not sure that's relevant.
The only mark it has is something that looks like 5A or a damaged 5O maybe.

Tiki pottery, but I donít know the maker. Very popular style in the 70s; I think there was even a chain of restaurants back then

Thanks Naomi.
The glaze is very much like Kernewek or Fosters but Google hasn't bought anything up for me that looks similar down that road.
And the tiki stuff all looks a bit more aggressive and deliberately figurative than the faces on this one. Plus most of it is marked properly where this isn't.
Back to the hunt.

Put this in Ebay search "TI-TOKI" and you'll find something with a similar glaze.

No, I donít think so. That Fosters design was used on various sizes and shapes of pots but there werenít other versions of it.

I think you're right. All my googling has got me nowhere. I did find some German mid century stuff that had a very similar glaze but nothing with a similar pattern. Maybe it's just a handmade one-off. That would explain its wonkiness.
