ROSEVILLE POTTERY, CARNELIAN II, 2 HANDLED FLARING VASE
For sale is a lovely vase with a Wonderful Glaze combination made by The Roseville Pottery Company of Zanesville, Ohio. The Pattern is "Carnelian II" and the shape is a Double Handled Flaring Vase. The Vase is large as it measures 8 1/8" tall and is 6 7/8" in diameter outside handles measurement.
The Vase displays a Wonderful example of this Carnelian II Glaze. There is a deep rich Purple Wisteria Glaze that drips down from the top over the edge and down towards the bottom of the Vase. It swirls into a Pink to Dusty Rose Bubble Gum Glaze at the bottom. It is then Marbleized with a lighter hue of Plum, more like Raspberry and Lilac. The Glaze is Goopy and drippy as you can see an feel the thickness around the pot. It kinds of reminds me of Cotton Candy as the Glaze Looks that Yummy. It is accented with Two Applied Art Deco Styled Handles that rise up off the bottom waist and connect at the base of the tall Flaring Neck.
The vase is considered to be in Excellent Condition as there are no cracks, chips, nicks or dings. The piece is not signed on the bottom and more than likely had a Paper or Foil Label. The Vase does have the number 332 written in a Red Grease Pencil. This is as good as a signature as it is Roseville Shape Number 332-8 in their Carnelian Line. There is also the number 7 written in a Blue Grease Pencil just under the shape number and is most likely the finishers mark. This Shape was adapted from the Carnelian I Line. This was not uncommon for Roseville to do this with the Carnelian II line in their earlier years of this particular pattern. The inside of the Pot shows just how wonderful and Goopy this Glaze really is. There are pools of glaze all over the interior
The piece has an Art Deco Appeal. This Vase is all about the Glaze and Form and this one has it all. This is a great example of this particular glaze and I'm quite sure the buyer will not be disappointed. The Vase was made circa, 1915-1927.
