Product Description
This is a vintage ceramic soap dish shaped like a large clam shell. It is glazed in denim blue with little tan and white 3D shell shapes in the bowl, with dark green seaweed. This is great for the beach house or the beach lover! It blends well with a casual nautical decorating style.

The back of this piece is marked "Tesoro 1977." It also has a hand-scratched mark that combines the letters T, E, and S. There are also three "stilt marks" where the piece was held off a surface as it was fired.

I haven't found any information on the company, but I do know that the name Tesoro means "treasure" in Italian.

Dimensions:
6 1/2 in. L x 5 in. W x 1 1/2 in. T (US)
16.5 cm. L x 12.6 cm. W x 3.8 cm. T (Metric)

Condition notes: This piece has some crazing (crackling in the glaze), which is a natural aging process for ceramics, caused by uneven heating and expansion of the pottery, excessive water exposure, etc. Sold as is.

Shipped domestic parcel post with delivery confirmation, or first class international.
