I've come across this red vase with flowers on it, there is no factory mark just "K.JONES" painted on the bottom under the glaze. I can't find any information online, does anyone have any knowledge of a K.Jones?

Hi there L1amv23 and welcome to the Forum Very Happy

That is a very beautiful vase and has a fabulous glaze on it.
I wish I could tell you who K. Jones is, but I have no idea.
I've never seen that vase shape before.
Hoping that someone may be able to give you some help.

Thanks for the warm welcome, it doesn't appear anyone knows anything about the maker though. Oh well! It's still a nice piece anyway

L1amv23,
This reminds me so much of a pair of antique Art Nouveau vases I have, but the foot looks kind of Chinese.

I'm not very good with flowers so if someone can say what this flower is it might help.

My vases are majolica glaze and being Art Nouveau are primarily green in colour. I have no idea of their country of origin: they might be English, but could alternatively be from mainland Europe.

I think we can safely say that your vase is castware, that is that it was made in a mould. Next thing is to work out whether it is an original piece or a later reproduction. If you have followed newzealandpottery for some time you may have read about Hobby Ceramics, a phenomenon of the 1980s onward where existing moulds were used to create lightweight pottery for hobbyists to decorate in hobby classes. That ware is usually glazed underneath like yours, may have marks from stilts used to keep the glazed bottom from sticking to the kiln shelves, and have a name or initials, usually scratched into the clay.

If you think this piece is lighter than you would expect it to be it may be a hobby piece or alternatively a piece sold as greenware or bisque ware, which was also sold for others to decorate.

If you think the weight is substantial then it may be an original piece but the combination of the beautifully modelled flower and lack of a full foot ring does not seem right to me. It does have the small feet, but they are glazed over, which is not the usual practice of a professional potter.

That flower just looks so familiar, but I cannot look at my vases atm because I am overseas. I will look when I get back Monday and add more if I think it could be useful to you.
