I'm not really quite sure what to make of these two vases...

Ochre / honey glaze, incised naive decoration. One has a large sun face on the front and on the reverse a bird, a face in a heart and a plant (not to mention a creepy diamond face above the sun); on the other there is also a sun face, a butterfly and a plant either side of the handle. There's blurry underglaze blue paint.

The clay is off-white earthenware (which can be seen in the chips) while it has a pinkish tinge on the underside of each. Unmarked although one has pencilled numbers, possibly a price.

My first thoughts were Belgian, given the way the blue has bled but I'm not really sure. Possibly folk art from somewhere in South or Central America? Clearly they have a good deal of age about them from the old looking crack around the centre of one plus fine glaze crazing.

Anyone have any thoughts... whatsoever?
