Pen or brush holder in the oriental style.
Decoration is reminiscent of Dartington Pottery, so by one of their ex-artists, maybe?
Unmarked

Might it be a modern Chinese export piece?

Found a similar one, listed as Studio Pottery Ceramic Flower Brick by Francis Ceramics. Checked out Francis Ceramics and it's a husband and wife team (Mike & Carol Francis) who make reproduction delft, etc, tiles for high end interior design. They used to make stoneware.
I don't think its a Japanese/Chinese import because the glaze is crazed and their flower bricks are  of a much better quality.

This is the only mark I have ever had like this, and I haven't the foggiest idea where it could be from.  Googling my vague interpretations is getting me absolutely nowhere!  Thank you for looking 🙂

Very strange mark. It almost looks like a shopping cart with a couple of people inside. Probably using all the letters of their name, if you can decipher it. Not a mark I’ve come across before

It reminds me of Ingleton Pottery ... the one handed potter up in Lancashire. Big Shock

Little vase with a clear impressed mark, looks like a W with two lines within a square.
Any help identifying this appreciated, thank you.

I think you have got it already Ben. A strongly Dart, Janice Tchalenko inluenced piece. Without a mark that is about all you can say. Still its a good enough moniker to catch the right Ebay searches!

Thank you, well done. It certainly is reminiscent of Dartington. I think I prefer their Delft type pieces.

I think it's a handwritten mark for Michael and Carol Francis, Llanfyrnach, Crymych, Pembrokeshire (They are both upside down. It's MF for Michael Francis)

My goodness. How do you store all these unidentified marks in your brain, and then manage to find the thread almost 2 years later!? I saw a ID request a few weeks ago with a plate that matches a cheese dome I have and I can't even find that now 🤷‍�
Thank you for this 😊
