This handsome, heavy studio art pottery vase, made of stoneware clay, has an avocado green glaze that is rough in some areas and smooth in others. The central tree, hand painted with a deep green trunk, branches and roots, has a multitude of tiny umber leaves. The umber color was daubed on in areas large and small and down into the interior as well. The glaze is porcelain-like and high gloss. The modern inverted trumpet shape is rimless and has a flared disc base. The wheel marks, very visible on the inside, have been almost completely smoothed on the outside of the vase. We have spent many hours trying to identify the artist's chop mark, shown in our photo # 3, with no luck so far.
This vintage vase stands 6 1/2 inches tall, with a 3 1/2 inch wide mouth and a base diameter of 4 3/4 inches. It weighs just over 2 pounds, very sturdy and steady. The interior is fully glazed, so it can be filled with fresh flowers as well as dried or silk ones.
