I purchased this vase today at a sale and I am trying to determine the maker's mark on this vase and where it possibly was made. I think its European or possibly Russian. Thanks for you help.

    Am thinking British. There is also writing around the bu but not clear for me to see. You can go online for antique vase markings and get some free help. Also the library has books on antique markings.

    google images of antique vases. You may be able to track the vase down that way.

    The E.U. is for European Union. I can't make out the name around it, it looks Czechoslovakian . Can you write what the rest says?

      @Marlene Murray And I thought it said B.U. Now I see the "E" .. I can only make out a few of the letters with the photos I have. Hoping to take better photos this morning.

    Hi...send a high resolution image of the mark to Replacements Unlimited, perhaps they can help you identify it!!!

    Here is a website that has about 1600 pages of information. They will do their best to track down the manufacturer. Need info - measurements, is it cloisonne, is it fired, is it painted, is it gold leaf, etc. Also will need better definition on names; did find this info based on the "...zlich: Gesetzlich - after 1899: These are the German words for legally patented or registered. Did not find any similar marks in W. Germany records. Is there enough of an impression that you could do a pencil rubbing (like they do on old gravestones)? Good Luck!!

    The pattern makes me think of a popular pattern called Imari or Old Imari. Its not identical, but very much like it.

      Imari ware is Japanese, this more likely Slavic country like Czech.

    Please spell out the letters above E U. Can make out what looks like xxxxTZLICH- What are the letters before that? The light/shadow on photo blurs them. Here is the antique marks for Kovals I found. The link should take you to the "oval/round" marks. OK just picked out the top name-Besetzlich-which is German pottery. Please post the letters under the EU. http://www.kovels.com/marks/pottery-porcelain-marks.html
