Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me identify the maker or country of origin on these hand etched pottery vases. Thank you in advance for looking.

Hi Nancy

These vases appear to have grabbed a bit of every culture on the Mediterranean. With really clear Egyptian and Greek imagery. The fact it carries Chinese and English writing underneath also tells us two things. It was made to sell in Europe and it was made in the far east. Even without looking I guessed Vietnam but when you type into google Minh long you get that confirmed.

So Vietnam. I am guessing the late 1980's early 1990's. Not sure the Factory makes much difference to these at the moment. They are like the Italian/East German ceramics were 30 years ago. Low priced, decorators items from largely unknown factories. Could be ones for the future if you find the right designs that better reflect the culture they came from.

How do I stop the photos scrolling long enough to see the mark?
