This was Frank Ferrell's most popular design that he ever created while working at The Roseville Pottery Company.

The Pinecone line was considered the most Popular Line ever made at Roseville Pottery and that is still evident today. There are 4 colors that Pinecone was made and they are Blue, Brown, and Green and Pink. Pink Commands the Highest Price and is Rarely seen. Blue Commands the next highest price with Brown and Green not too far behind.
The Jardiniere is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks nicks, chips or dings. The Vase is signed with the incised "Roseville" mark along with the pattern number 632-4" which is also incised. There is also a number 6 and large letter T lighting incised below the mold number.
