ROSEVILLE POTTERY, SNOWBERRY, LARGE BLUE BASKET, NICE - For Sale
ROSEVILLE POTTERY, SNOWBERRY, LARGE BLUE BASKET, NICE
For sale is a very lovely Art Pottery Basket Vase made by The Roseville Pottery Company of Zanesville, Ohio. The design is the ever popular, "Snowberry" pattern. It is done in the most sought after Blue background Glaze. The Basket is rather large as it stands 8 1/4" tall and is 9" in diameter outside handle measurements.
The Vase depicts very pleasing clusters of White Berries with a handful of detained green leaves on brown winding branches flowing from the top to the bottom. This is set against a background Glaze that bleeds from a medium blue to a Rosie Blue in the middle and back to a medium at the bottom. There is a Triangular Shaped Styled Handle that loops over from the top lip and attaches to the other sides waist. This gives this piece that Art Deco flair!
The Vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. There is some very minor crazing and this seem to be typical with this glaze especially with the basket shape. The Vase is signed with the "Roseville U.S.A." Raised Relief Cipher Mark along with the mold number "1BK-8" also in raised relief. The "BK" Stands for Basket. There is also a raised letter 3 in the bottom glaze. I'm not sure what this means.
This is truly a lovely Basket Vase in a very desirable Glaze color. The Vase was made Circa 1947, just after World War II
