Standing a smidge over 11 inches tall, with a 4 1/2 inch square base, this lovely textured vase is by Shawnee, approximately 1950’s, one of the few that Shawnee made that wasn’t smooth surface.
The outside is made to look like wood-texture, and certainly does feel that way. The inside is coated with a black heavy coating, and has worn off in spots due to use.
But there are no cracks, no chips, unusual for some Shawnee pottery, which often is fragile and does have minor chiggerbites. But not this one! The bottom is imprinted with the Shawnee logo name, USA and the number 1211.
