I knew I recognised this pattern, which I last saw in November 2004! I have placed image and details here www.blueandwhite.com/products.asp?p=19CN99995 (you made need to copy and paste into address bar?) with apologies to my friends at Cheffins, Cambridge, England for borrowing their image and to the TCC for placing it to view on a commercial website!
It is interesting that it was attributed to Spode, although like Loren I believe that to be wrong. The covered vase has a shape that is not in the right proportions, that Spode would ensure? Plus they were not keen on lion finials, preferring Dogs of Fo etc.
As for the real maker? Still work in progress? We do have two shapes now that may help?
