Roseville Pottery, Cherry Blossom, Large Jardiniere, Multi Colored~~~
For Sale is a beautiful piece of Art Pottery made by The Roseville Pottery Company of Zanesville, Ohio. The Pattern is called "Cherry Blossom" and it is done in their most highly collected and sought after three color background Glaze. The piece has some size to it as it stands 6" tall and is 8 1/4" in diameter. The shape is considered a Planter or Jardinière.
The pattern depicts vertically running Pink slits that covers two-thirds of the piece from the bottom to the Chest of the Vase. Clinging to the top of the stilts is a vine of fully opened Cherry Blossoms entangled with Brown Vines and Green Leaves. The background glaze is subtle as it bleeds from a Cherry tint leading upwards to a subtle Satin Matte Blue Green Glaze. The piece is accented on the neck of each side of the planter with small ear shaped handles. This is such a beautiful Roseville Pattern especially with all these colors.
The Planter is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no, cracks, chips, nicks, or dings. The piece is unsigned but it still retains part of its original Retail Store label. There is also a number "5" incised by a stilt mark as well as the number "9" written in blue glaze. These are more than likely the finishes marks. There are also remnants of felt located along the bottom edge in 3 areas to help prevent it from scratching the furniture. This is known as shape number 627-6" in The Roseville Pottery Catalog pages.
Those of you who collect this pattern and want a nice clean example will surely welcome this one into their collection. This piece shows minor signs of use. This Roseville Planter was made circa 1932.
