It would help to see a few pictures of the entire piece.  Someone might recognize the style easier than the faint markings on the bottom.

It really does have some similarities to Pisgah Forest Pottery but I just can't match up the markings.  I am thinking maybe an overseas pottery?  It is a nice looking piece.  Good luck!

Thanks for the info!!...I had never heard of " Pisgah Forest Pottery" before..neat stuff!!...

 

One of the signatures looks almost like it spells Olsson...but it is so difficult to be sure...

 

Thanks so much for trying to help..

No problem.  The more I look at this vase the more I think the style is that of one of the southern American potteries.  The only reason I suggested it might be overseas is because of the markings.  They almost look like they are in a different language. 

 

Anyway, I took another look and found one more.  The markings on the bottom are a little clearer but I still can't make them out.  Hopefully someone with better eyes than me can figure it out, lol.  :smileyvery-happy:

Ok, this is too funny!  I was going through some of my watched items and I have been watching a vase with the same marks.  It is a different shape but looks to be the same maker.  The vase is currently listed but here is a link to a completed auction where it did not sell.  The mystery continues!  :smileywink:

We actually like Worthpoint.  We have been selling for several years now and can't tell you how many time when reacearching an item, the only sales history we could find for a comparable was on WP.  So we broke down and subscribed about a year ago.  You only have to subscribe if you want the sales prices for items.  Anyone can search through the site and look at the descriptions for reasearch purposes.  

 

Keep in mind though, none of the information in the listings is verified but it has still been a great resource for us.

Thanks again...I'm going to look more closely at Worthpoint...If they don't just concentrate on eBay sales...sounds like it might be a timesaver....for sure...:heart:

Most of the listings are by eBay but they use other sites as well.

 

P.S.  I sent you a message.  :smileyhappy:
