This vase is marked on the bottom in a circle, "Swetye Salem, O." T is an outline of a star in the center of that circle. The base clay is quite white. The glaze is a heavy matte silver with an over-glaze of glossy silver. The interior is clear glazed to show the natural color of the clay. Condition is excellent; no chips, no cracks, no crazing. T are no obvious signs of previous use. The vase is 8 1/4" tall, and 4" wide at the mouth.
