Lovely decoration. Iíve seen the bird motif on foreign pieces, but I canít remember which country. Iím wondering if RSA is South Africa?

Thanks NaomiM. No idea where itís from originally. Chickens decoration ( Iím assuming theyíre chickens) look like the speckled Suffolk breed.
Does RSA stand for Royal society of arts? Are they known for ceramics?

This is the bird Iím thinking of. A common motif on some South African pottery

Your vase looks premoulded, so Phil is likely to be the decorator. Maybe a Free Trade community crafts product.
