Weller Pottery, Coppertone Frog, Fountain Garden Ornament, Outstanding!!
Price: $1295.00
For Sale I have a very hard to find piece of Art Pottery made by The Weller Pottery Company of Zanesville, Ohio. The piece is a Garden Ornament Fountain Frog and the pattern is the ever sought after "Coppertone". The Frog is very large as it measures approximately 5 1/2" tall and is 6" in diameter. It is approximately 6 1/2" in overall length. The Fountain Frog depicts a very handsome frog waiting for the next fly to buzz by for an easy meal. His colors are just great as there is a bright Green mottling over a tan to deeper copper colored background. He has bright eyes outlined with care and the accents on his mouth were carefully addressed as well. He has a circle opening in his mouth for the water to come through and an opening on the bottom for a hose to be inserted. He is undoubtedly a striking prince that would highlight any "Coppertone" or "Frog" Collection. The Fountain Ornament is considered to be in Excellent Condition as there are no cracks, chips, nicks or dings. There are no chips around either of the working holes and I believe this was a shelf piece and never used for what it was intended to be. The only flaw I can find is a small white glaze miss on his left eye however it has a clear over glaze over it and is not a chip. I have been told these eyes are made of Glass. This flaw does not detract from the Frogs value or looks.The Frog is unsigned except for the number 12 written in grease pencil which is the finisher's mark. This was probably one of Weller's more meticulous artists as I have had many "Coppertone" Frogs with the number 12 written on the bottom. This Coppertone Garden Ornament "Fountain Frog" was made Circa 1926-1929. It is simply amazing the condition this one is in. I am sure the lucky buyer will be elated with their purchase!! The quality of this doesn't get any better.
