Who made 5 inch, flower motif, 2 handled Greek urn-style, single glaze vases marked USA 875
Hi! My name is XXXXX XXXXX X would be happy to help with your question:
There is a Shawnee Pottery vase similar to the one you are describing which has the mold number 875.
It looks like this:
I have only ever seen it in grey and occasionally green but I am sure there were other colors.
This design of embossed flowers is sometimes known as the '"Daisy Chain" pattern and it dates to 1950s when Shawnee Pottery was at its peak at Zanesville, Ohio.
The vase has a retail value of about $35.00. Expect to get about half this on eBay / Etsy / Amazon etc.
I do hope this solves the mystery!
Please let me know if I can be on further assistance,

You are Good! That is exactly the little vase I bought (for $6.00). There were two more, so I bought them as well! One is green with larger daisies and 1/4 inch taller, and one is soft blue with Iris pattern. Thank you for your prompt reply, you have been most helpful !!
Excellent buy for $6.00! And glad I was able to help give it a name.
Many thanks for the positive rating and the bonus. Much appreciated!
