The vase is made of red clay and quite well made. 4 1/4'' tall. It is signed to the base, not sure about the first part but it looks like: dru, obru, abu? second word is either Cyprus or Cymru.
Judging by the style I'm placing my bet on the Mediterranean option. Would that be a tourist ware or a studio piece?

Yes, I love it too. However it is so delicate I've already smashed one of the handles  Doh! Luckily enough I've kept all the pieces and spent one evening restoring it, as you can see on the pictures it still displays well  Happy

Yes, it's Cyprus. There's an incense burner on ebay (completed listing) with the same mark on the base and blue glaze. Possibly from Lemba.

Thanks Naomi, I have found only 2 Lemba signatures so cannot be 100% sure but it does look like Lemba.

The first word may be a village name, but unfortunately I can't read it.

I don't think that this is Lemba (I have a few), wrong clay and signature.
