Hi.  Hope someone can help.  I bought this vase from an auction where it was simply described as a SCOTTISH POTTERY VASE.  No-one had any further information.  There are marks on the base but so badly smudged that I can't make out what it says.  There is also an impressed name and number (I think it's a number), but I've not been able to find anything despite using many variations on what I think the impressed name/number says.  It measures 26 cms tall x 13 cms in diameter at the base and weighs almost 1300 gms.  Any help much appreciated.

I've done some more searches now that I know the maker and have seen a couple of these vases on the web. The descriptions against both say they are 1930's Art Deco designed by Clarice Cliff. Has anyone got any information that can either confirm or refute these claims. Thanks
