This may be two it's definitely one vase by Henning Rathjen as I can see the signature. The second vase has green felt glued very tightly to the base and as yet I have not prised it off, however the same rough textured cream finish, with flower / plant motif, similar shape and size make me think the second vase is also very likely by Rathjen who studied in Melbourne and had his own pottery studio 1947 - late 1960s.
The Powerhouse museum collection in Sydney houses a vase, larger and examples exist in other major gallery collections, while his work is still very inexpensive and you'll come across it occasionally at markets and op shops.
