About this site

I've recently purchased a colourful pair of flask vases. The stamp on the rear is not one that is listed in the gallery, so i was wondering if anyone could help me date them? It is an oval blue stamp with "Shorter & Son Ltd" written horizontally across the middle and "Made in" following the top of the oval and "England" along the lower oval line. Also on the base is written in free hand black glaze is, "Espanol by Mabel Leigh". Any help or guidance regarding the date or the pattern would be greatly appreciated. I haven't been able to find anything on the internet so far.
Many thanks,

The backstamp you describe was used between 1933-1940.
