ROSEVILLE POTTERY, PINECONE, BLUE PLANTER-BOWL, NICE - For Sale
ROSEVILLE POTTERY, PINECONE, BLUE PLANTER-BOWL, NICE
For sale is a Lovely Art Pottery Bowl made by The Roseville Pottery Company of Zanesville, Ohio. The Pattern is called "Pinecone" and it is done in their most highly collected Blue Background Glaze. This Pattern and Color is one of Roseville's most desirable to Collect. The Bowl stands 2 3/8" tall and is 9" in diameter outside handles measurement. The inside of the Bowl measurements are 6 3/8" in diameter.
The Bowl has a very pleasing Blue background Glaze with the Background behind the Pine Needles being a lightly peppered sand colored Glaze. The Vase depicts very realistic handles in the form of branches joined to a Pinecone with Green Needles protruding from the Cone. The Pine cone itself has very nice detail done in a light brown glaze color. The inside of the bowl is very clean and shows a wonderful Speckled Tan-light brown Glaze.
This was Frank Ferrell's most popular design that he ever created while working at The Roseville Pottery Company. In fact, the company would have had to close it doors if it wasn't for the success of this line. The Pinecone line was considered the most Popular Line ever made at Roseville Pottery and that is still evident today. There are 4 colors that the Pinecone Line was made and they are Blue, Brown, and Green and Pink. Pink Commands the Highest Price and is Rarely seen. Blue Commands the next highest price with Brown not too far behind.
The Bowl is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks nicks, chips or dings. The Vase is signed with the Incised "Roseville" mark along with the mold number 354-6". There is also the number "4" and the letter "D" written in the same Blue Background Glaze. More than likely this was the finishers number and Artist Initial. I also saw in impressed number 7. I would assume that was a different finishers number as I rarely see an incised number on the bottom of Roseville pieces.
This is a quality piece of Art Pottery that will enhance any art pottery collection, especially those of you who collect Roseville Blue Pinecone. The Bowl or Planter was made Circa 1935-1940.
