The photo you have provided does look to have been done during manufacture. Please also add a picture of the vase (only pic here is of the bottom) if you'd like me to assess what you have.

Parian ware is a fusion of porcelain and glass and there was sometime required as a cooling process and these are set marks for cooling.
