If sellers do not mention scratches I usually ask.

Somebody told me (or did I read it on the board) that if you rub a little silicone oil on the scratch it will disappear, it will of course reappear if you wash the vase. Maybe a simpler solution than having it polished.

It's not just toddlers that have trouble with small parts you know. ;D

Sue, before you consider professional polishing, try a little silver polish on a soft cloth on the scratch. Sometimes very light ones will polish out with that. The pink stuff from Goddards works quite well (comes in a navy blue bottle.)
