Turquoise ceramic urn? Can anyone help identify this piece & its makers mark? Much Thanks!
Does anyone know anything about this vase?
I am confused by the two different images on the opposite sides.
I know NOTHING about this vase so any info/guesses is very much appreciated.
More pics to follow
Please help me identify this pattern.
I strayed far from my usual and picked up this lovely jar today. It looks like it may have had a lid once. I thought the design and decoration was marvelous, and it's a nice, heavy, sturdy piece. What little I can see in the murky depths leads me to believe that it may have been wheel thrown, and assembled in a couple of sections. Though I know that there is some serious talent out there re. making things look old... this looks, to my untrained eye, to have some genuine wear. I can see where the design (different on both sides) was drawn on in spots, it does have fine crazing, plus glaze flaws. It is 9" high. Oh, please don't tell me it used to have someone's grandma's ashes in it...
I guess I would like to know:
1) What is/was it?
2) Approximate age
3) Keywords I can use to do a little research
4) How long I should cry if I break it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'd love to know who made this bowl , a long shot but maybe someone will recognise the design .
This is unsigned , the base is rounded and is textured almost like the wet clay had been placed on material , this effect is also under the glaze on the underside only , the glaze is also crazed.
Measures approx' 7 1/2" across
Here's another mystery mark - Shaw - possible Military teapot? I could use help identifying...
