This vintage Henry Graack Silver Spring Pottery Swirl vase measures 4" high by 4" in diameter.   Graack worked at Fort Ticonderoga at Lake Champlain in upstate NY, in the 1920s-1930s.  He left NY c1935 when he was invited to Ocala, Florida by William Rae, owner of the Silver Springs. Graack spent the next thirty-one years, until his death in Ocala in 1966, making souvenir pottery for tourists at the Silver Spring.  This vase is formed by natural clays, which were swirled together, and dominated in greens and terra cotta clay colors. It is hand turned, with a loose ruffle design at the rim.  It is impressed 'Silver Springs, Florida' on the base.  This vase is in good condition with some pinholes in the clay, and a small surface chip at the rim, all shown in the photos.  This is a classic example of Silver Springs Pottery by Graack from the 1950s-1960s, and it has all the nuances of a handmade pot.
