Do you think the Mark on vase could be Made in Spain- so hard to read

I don't think so. It is just impossible to read. When you have raised letter on something, the best way to photograph it is to light it strongly from one side only. This causes a shadow on the other side form the raised areas that makes for an easier read.

In some cases, a mark is intentionally obscure in order to look like something that it is not.
