Hi Peter!

I have been pouring over your web site...wonderful! and I came upon a post by Michael in Hollywood...he has/had a vase with the same coloring and style as this one...the eyes are not right for an antique and the noses are too pointed! I think I have answered my own question???...this is a vintage piece...but I have learned a great deal more information and I really appreciate it, as well as your time! Be safe and well...Respectfully yours,

The mark is spurious and only for decoration. The item is from later in the 20th century.
