    Please post some photos of the vase-it can easily narrow down a country/age/style.

    looks French to me, I'll go see if I have that mark in one of my books ..back in a bit:bookworm:
    <edit> ok, I'm back - not any mark in the French section but a couple of possibilities in the English section:jawdrop:

    1. Early Carter, Stabler and Adams mark

    2. Jean-Charles Cazin (French but worked mainly in London)

    good luck!

    As far as I know, not much if any porcelain was produced in the Islamic world, pottery yes, lots, porcelain? Nope.

    I still think you are dealing with a monogram written in the "regular" alphabet.

    Could you take a picture less tightly cropped so we can see the form and scale of the piece?

    I'm with the others, there is nothing Islamic about this vase (cache-pot?). Not in the style of the decoration and not in the mark.

    I’m stumped. I see a K and a C or G. But maybe that’s not the correct orientation?

    After a few days puzzling over this vase, I realized there was something very familiar about the beast and shield motif and the "French Renaissance" feel I got from it ...... Today, that memory "jog" set me off on a trail I hadn't been down for many a moon ..

    About 20 years ago, I was fortunate enough to acquire and sell a large-ish pair of Emile Gallé candelabra like these - (mine were polychrome, however)


    So this morning I started looking around for other Gallé pottery and porcelain and ran across a piece, also in cobalt blue and gold, like the OP's ..pruduced by
    Keller & Guerin ...that monogram on the OP's vase did look like it had a "K" and "G" in it ...maybe, just maybe .. Yes, that's was it!

    Emile Gallé for Keller and Guerin.

    whose signature is this? I am searching and i cant find any similar! Its Emile Gallé or keller and guerin?

    I'm suggesting it is an Emile Gallé design, executed and produced by Keller and Guerin at Luneville. Seems reasonable, considering they did collaborate. Signature is Keller and Guerin.

    I should also mention that the candelabrum I showed earlier had no Gallé signature either, were simply signed St. Clement.
