Roseville Pottery, Magnolia Double Handled Blue Console Bowl, Lovely~~
For sale is a beautiful piece of Art Pottery made by The Roseville Pottery Company of Zanesville, Ohio. The Pattern is called "Magnolia" and it is in the ever Popular Blue background Glaze. The Console Bowl has some size to it as it stands 3 1/2" tall and is 13 1/4" wide outside handles measurements. It is 7 1/4" deep. The inside bowl measures 11 5/16" outside lip measurements. The inside measurement is 10 3/4".
The Bowl displays a nice shape. It has an irregular top border with lots of high and lows. It has two triangular applied handles at each end for easy handling.
The Bowl has a very pleasing two toned blue textured background glaze. This seems to resemble bark from a tree. It is further embossed with 2 large off White Magnolia Flowers with Pink Centers. The pattern is a little bit different on the opposite side but the glaze colors are the same. There is some Fuchsia Sky glaze coloring on the top right hand corner of the bowl and this the same on both sides. These flowers on both sides appear to be flowering from wavy black branches.
The piece is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The piece is signed on the bottom in raised relief "Roseville U.S.A." and the mold number 449-10" also in raised relief. The vase has a large letter "M" and the number "13" written in a Blue grease pencil. This was more than likely the finisher's mark. This Console Bowl vase is extremely clean as you can see.
This piece was made in 1943 during World War II. Those of you who collect this pattern and want a nice example need to look no further. This is an excellent example in both form and Glaze combinations.
