For sale is a beautiful Jardinière made by The Nelson McCoy Pottery Company of Roseville, Ohio. The pattern is "Scroll" and the shape is called a "Jardinière, Planter or Ferner" and the Glaze in known as "Blended". This lovely Jardinière is a nice size as it measures 6 1/2" tall and is 7 3/4" in diameter.
The Planter depicts a border of Embossed Scrolls around the top rim separated by a round bead between each scroll. The "Belly" of the Jardinière has vertical alternating reeds that are molded in high and low relief. The shape of these reeds also alternates in shapes of Elongated rectangles with Elongated Ovals for a very nice Arts and Crafts effect. The bottom third of the Planter is finished with four horizontal rings to complete the look.
This is a Spectacular example of the Blended glaze and is by far the nicest one I've ever had the pleasure of owning.

This Planter has a rainbow palette of colors that drip from the top almost all the way to the base. The colors are Teal to Country Blue, Fuchsia to Purple, Tan to Rust, and a warm Brown at the Base.
