Hi all

Wanted to pick some brains on here. Got this pair of vases on Sunday. The have a great orange colour that to me is nicer than the uranium orange popular in Europe in the 1920's. I thought they could be from Japan due to the depth of one of the foots (the other is slightly shallower) but equally they could be from China. They have a imprinted dot on the base but I don't think that's an makers mark? The bit that is intriguing me is why they originally had the bases painted with a black treacle like substance. I looks like it was trying to simulate something else? It's a mystery to me. I am also unsure of age. So if we have any experts about on these I would be very happy for any info.

Cheers

They both have a word stamped on the base, partially hidden by whatever that black stuff is on the base. If suggest trying to clean it up a bit more and and rephotograph them

Pretty sure they are Moorcroft, they did a fair bit of these orange lustre pieces... can't say I'm a fan to be honest! Big Laughter

Going to need some thinner to dissolve the black fully but a bit of a scrub on one of them does reveal a word ending in croft. Think we have a winner Clap

As lustres go there ok.
