ROOKWOOD POTTERY, WILD ROSES, COUNTRY BLUE TAPERED VASE - For Sale
ROOKWOOD POTTERY, WILD ROSES, COUNTRY BLUE TAPERED VASE
For sale I have a very nice piece of Art Pottery made by The Rookwood Pottery Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. I would call the Shape a Tapered Swollen Vase. It is a nice size as it stands 4 7/8" tall and is 4 1/2" in diameter at it widest point. The opening in the top is 2 1/2".
The Vase has a very pleasing "Country Blue" background glaze. The form has a large hole in the top and swell out at the neck and tapers down to the bottom. The embossed design is that of Wild Roses entwined between 2 Vines or growing on a Trellis. Such a pleasing form that is not all that commonly found.
The Vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The Vase is signed on the underside bottom with Rookwood's Impressed Reverse "RP" Sunburst Logo along with the Roman Numerals "XXVI" for the year of Manufacture, 1926 and form number 2589.
This would look outstanding on that Stickley, Mission, Arts and Crafts Style Bookcase. I'm sure the lucky buyer will be extremely pleased!
