I see "SCH-UMB-Y(or G), and 55 as the date? I've seen this signature on pieces before, in person, and it came from that wealthy estate where I got the big yellow Chinese lamp/vase. If the date is 55, that's a good era for studio art pottery, so it might be something. Anyone familiar with this name? I've definitely seen it before

Possibly Schramberg pottery, Germany.

Actually, just found him, its Don Schaumburg

Schramberg would have been the most logical guess though, since its well-known art pottery

Thanks again Naomi, boy I'm on a roll with identifying art pottery. Maybe I should post that other weird old piece

As a Navy Reserve in the late 1940s Schaumberg gained a reputation as a fine artist but began potting around 1950 in the San Diego area.

His ceramics are what he became known for and for many years was a valued member of the Art Department at Arizona State University.

Yup, that's the page I found too. He made this one a year after moving here apparently. I've seen that name on pieces around here before, now I know why
