Hello all!
So impressed was I with your help last time that I'm now back with a little pot of my mum's (previously my Aunt's). It looks very art nouveau in colour and shape. Mum's had it about 20 yrs, but has no idea how long my aunt owned it before her. It is beautiful to hold and is about 7cm high and 9cm at its widest. It is marked with an incised Bo in a circle (an angular 'B') and the numbers 3512 and 1703. Any help or info would be very much appreciated.

I think that it's Swedish and from the Boberg Faience Company, aka Bofajans. The company was started by Eric Boberg in 1874 and continued until 1967. It appears that from around 1910 they produced art pottery items such as this but I'm not sure of the date of your lidded pot.
