    Hello and a happy summer to everyone.

    I picked up this large red vase and can't figure out who made it. The signature/mark on the bottom is smeared. When I originally picked it up I thought it was enameled copper, but after further inspection I located a small chip on the rim and realized it was terracotta. Any thoughts regarding its maker/origin?

    Thank you so much, I've never seen this website before and it's already been super helpful. I think you may be onto something regarding Vallauris, one of the red pieces on the site has a signature done in the same kind've ink, in a similar red, with the same color clay. Good eye, thanks again!
