I have searched for this and all I can find is an address in Oldham.  I think this vase is really gorgeous.  It is about 5" high and wide.  I love the shape and the cut out effect.  I have a fab piece of David Brown holey pottery in a similar shape.  It's my favourite.  I'm sure I've seen similar elsewhere, maybe a different pottery  Les Roberts, Dovestone pottery 466571 but can't find anything.

yeah agree. I also think it's nice because it's quite large though. If it were small it would be in danger of being 'twee' if you know what I mean?

Found a piece with the same decoration, labelled Waterside Mill, Greenfield, Saddleworth, Lancashire. It seems the potter was Les Roberts
