Anyone know the maker of this commemorative vase? Reminds me of Wedgewood but no marks at all.Mystery Staffordshire vase made from clay from Hill Top Chapel Burslem Img_2185

There were two potteries near the Chapel:

Within a couple of years a Council House was made available and eventually we moved onto a new Council Estate at Mill Hill in Tunstall. This did not end my ties with Burslem and Middleport. My Father's family had lived at the top of Hall Street in Burslem. The Wades Factory immediately behind the house, and the Hill Pottery a short distance away, opposite Hill Top Chapel. So, as you can imagine, as many of my parents closest relatives still lived in and around Burslem and Middleport, I spent many happy hours down there – mostly weekends and school holidays.
