For Auction is a Lovely Vase made by The Roseville Pottery Company of Zanesvile, Ohio. The pattern is "Clematis" and I have a nice size Double Handled Vase Form done in the most Popular Blue Glaze. The Vase Stands 7 1/4" Tall and is 5 3/16" inches in diameter outside Handles measurement.
The piece displays a Salmon to White Embossed Flowers and Yellow Flower Centers on a Tree like Textured Matte Blue Background. It is accented with Embossed Medium Green Foliage Leaves. The Vase is accented with Two Buttress Style Handles that reach out from just under the lip and drop down to the shoulder. The detail is Crisp and Sharp.
The piece is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The only issues to report is some light crazing and this is under extreme light. This seems to be common with this glaze for Clematis as I have a bowl that has some as well. There is an inclusion in one of the Clematis Flower petal ends. This is Factory as it was made this way.
The piece is signed with the "Roseville U.S.A." raised relief mark along with the Mold number 105-7" which is also in raised relief. There is also letters written in pencil above the Roseville Raised mark. There is the large letter "C" the number "1" and a small letter "c" written in Blue Glaze or a Grease Pencil. These are probably the Artist initial and finishers number.
Those of you looking for a Nice Crisp example in a nice cabinet size do not want to pass this one up. The Vase was made Circa 1944 during World War II.
