Weller Pottery, Muskota, Frog in Lotus Blossom, Flower Frog, Nice~~~
For Sale is hard to find piece of Art Pottery made by The Weller Pottery Company of Zanesville, Ohio. The pattern line is called "Muskota" and it is the Frog Lotus Blossom Flower Frog Vase. The Flower Frog Stands 4 3/4" tall, and is 4 3/4" wide and 3 1/4" deep.
The Flower Frog depicts a Frog emerging from a Lotus or Water Lily Blossom on the surface of a Pond or Lake. The Glaze Combination is Signature Weller at its Best. This Glaze reminds me of the Woodcraft Glaze line as well. The Glaze displays many shades of Browns and Greens throughout. The Frog has a determined look on his face as if he is just waiting for a Dragonfly to come buzzing by as he is patiently waiting for a meal. There are 5 stem holes in the base section below the frog and blossom for flowers or stems.
The Flower Frog is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The eyes and face have great detail and are not distorted like many I have seen. The Cream colored glaze shows its typical crazing. The Flower Frog is signed with the impressed "WELLER" in large block lettering. Those of you who collect Muskota and want an excellent example, do not let this one slip by you. This Flower Frog Vase will look wonderful in any Weller Coppertone or Weller Woodcraft Art Pottery Collection as well. This piece was made in the early part of the Middle Period, Circa 1917-1922.
