Hi, I found these two vases separately but think are from same era and factory. They both have a seam from casting. Hand decorated. Both use a lavender pink colour and have similar decorative theme landscapes at sunset. Different signatures I think, both pretty much illegible.

How old do you think they are? Would you think European or Asian?

My guess is they were mass produced shapes but probably have a bit of age to them. I think 1920s-1950s or more recent repro?

Very grateful for any help!

M. Oday? I’ve seen similar ones. I think it’s a Scottish Pottery, 60s-70s? Sometimes listed as Highland Stoneware but I don’t know if it’s an early example from that pottery

Thank you! That looks like a good guess on the signature but not found anything yet.

All the Highland Stoneware I looked at online looks like stoneware whereas mine have a seam down the side and look and feel like more porous and less solid. I see the similarity with the landscape etc I don't think my pics are clear enough to judge material and the seams arent showing but will dig them out again at some point.

Thanks again for new angles to investigate - always learn something even without a positive id

Were you thinking of Highbank? Definitely not Highland.

That’s the one. I was wondering why I couldn’t find it on my Pinterest boards: - definitely by Highbank Porcelain, Lochgilphead, Scotland. 80s-90s?

Thanks very much! Highbank sounded familiar, started looking at the pics and realised I used to have some of their dolphins.

Finding some very similar looking pieces now. Will update if I find any M Oday stuff!

Still find the ceramic types so confusing. Wouldn't have guessed these were porcelain. One day it will make sense hopefully.
