Looks like Van Briggle/McCoy/Roseville?

I have no idea who made this vase. Anyone know? Just has "68" on the bottom. Please see pictures.

I think it's a "wannabe".
Tehre were many smaller potterys that put out stuff that had a similar look to Roseville Van Briggle etc....but weren't as finely made. I think that's what you have.

I looked through my Antique Trader Pottery & Porcelain Ceramics book & what I noticed is that most items similar to yours have more depth to the pattern. The flowers on yours are rather faint. They look like tulips on the 1 side & slightly different arrangement on other side. Is the bottom painted or is that yellow pottery. Might help place area it was made.

I think the yellow is the base color and the matte blue is the top layer

Er, that is to say, I believe it is yellow pottery with matte blue paint.

Some of the very early matte pottery pieces did have a muted design to them in low relief. I picked up such a vase years ago at auction on a hunch and it's one of my more valuable pieces.

However, that being said, almost all the potteries did do a matte green/pink or blue phase along the line somewhere. They are not wannabes as much as each company's interpretation of a what was popular at the time.
Size of the pottery has little or nothing to do with quality of the work. It does have impact however in value through name recognition.

I don't think we can say much of anything about this piece until it's found in a collection or reference book or are familiar with the mark. Some pieces are so obscure that they are never identified and then you start doing the stretch with bottom finish, glaze method etc and that's more than you can do from a picture.

Good luck.
