This particular cylinder-shaped vase is by Troika. It has a nicely painted design that features creamy white circles with thin bands of dark orange and blue. This makes the round shapes look almost like the planet Saturn. Like a lot of Troika pottery, the vase also has a lovely feel with its outer matt finnish and pitted texture. The base has the monogram LH, indicating that it was painted by Linda Hazel, probably around 1972.
