Picked up this lovely tactile vase today at an antique fair in Edinburgh. To my eye the form would appear to be Japanese inspired. Very well thrown and I think it's been made by a potter of some considerable skill. The camera appears to have dulled the lustre glazes to some extent. Measures approximately 18cm in height. It does appear to be marked and if you rotate the mark it looks like a snail. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Can't find it in my 1999 copy of the Marks book. I'm sure I've seen it before. Scandinavian, maybe?

I've seen it before as well Naomi, trying to get my brain to release the information about where I've seen seems to be a problem though.

Thank you, the 3rd one down in your post is undoubtedly by the same potter. The others do seem a bit unrefined in comparison as you seem to be hinting at in your post on the French forum. The mystery deepens.
