Dear all,

Could you please help me identify this vases?
They became recently mine because an older couple moved out their house and they would trow them away.
they are used as decoration on top of a cabinet

Do you know for example the manufacturer?

The 2nd character of this seal mark reads Gama (kiln) 窯. The 1st character is a bit of a puzzle, but I think it's Maru 丸 (circle / round).
So probably Maru Gama, Marugama or Marukama (round kiln), all 3 are possible. The vases look pretty modern, so likely date: 1970-1990.
I could not find anything about a company or studio named Maru Gama on the web. So perhaps someone else knows more.
