ZANESVILLE POTTERY, MATT GREEN STYLIZED FLOWER VASE - For Sale
ZANESVILLE POTTERY, MATT GREEN STYLIZED FLOWER VASE
For sale is a Splendid Arts and Crafts Style Vase made by the Zanesville Stoneware Pottery Company of Zanesville, Ohio. The Vase is done in the very desirable Matt Green Glaze and the shape is what we call a "Ovoid" Shaped Vase. The Vase is rather large as it stands 8 5/8" tall and is 6" in diameter at the bulge.
The Vase depicts an embossed Stylized Flower on a Stem surrounded by two elongated Leaves on the front and back side. The Matt Green Glaze is wonderful in the Arts and Crafts decorating scheme. The Matt Green Glaze is very similar to Hampshire Pottery's Cucumber Matte Green Glaze. This is one of Zanesville most Popular Patterns and glazes. It was specifically designed to compete against the other Matte green Glazes produced by Weller, Teco, Grueby, Roseville and Hampshire. These were contemporaries to Zanesville at the turn of the Century.
The Vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, or chips. The only issues is the usually glaze pops and some crazing and is common with most Zanesville pieces. There is a small area on the lip that shows a minor glaze miss. This is Factory as it was made this way. The Vase is unsigned but it is know as shape number 101. Usually these numbers are impressed into the bottom but for some reason this one is missing it.
This is a wonderful form and would look just fine in any early Matte Green Art Pottery Collection. I'm sure it would look just fine on that Stickley Bookcase. This Vase was made in the early 1900's, Circa 1910-1920.
