Both Vases have the Lemon and Crute makers marks on the Underside and t hey were made in Torquay between 1915 and 1920 and would enhance any setting.

Attractive Art Nouveau Torquay Pottery vase, dating from around 1900. The vase has no makers marks; possibly made by Aller Vale or Watcombe. It has three handles, applied with a slight twist, two stylised foliage painted decorations, and an incised traditional motto, which reads.
The tea-pot is marked to the base with a black printed backstamp "TORMAHOUN WARE TORQUAY". The tea-pot is of a typical form, round and shouldered with a spout, and handle to the back, with sit-in lid, the sugar bowl round and bulbous with a lip and 2 handles, both pieces are decorated in green with a yellow band to the shoulder each with a scraffito motto, the tea-pot "FROM AULD IRELAND", the sugar bowl with "NEVER SAY DIE UP MAN AND TRY".
