Small vase with incised or carved decoration with signature to the base that I think reads K K Winterthern, the style of decor and numbering leads me to think its continental, any ideas?

It looks a bit like Winterthur, which is a city in Switzerland.

Yes, I had considered that but I can't find any pottery relating to it.

Could that be HH Winterthur, for "H Hanhart" ? I've got an alborello by them impressed "HH Winterthur".

The only other reference I've found to the pottery - except a couple of things turning up on ebay - is in this archaeological report, which says the pottery was established in 1879 and had closed by 1887.
