ROSEVILLE, IRIS, PINK LARGE PILLOW VASE, BEAUTIIFUL
For Auction is a beautiful piece of Art Pottery made by The Roseville Pottery Company of Zanesville, Ohio. The shape is a Pillow Vase and the pattern is the highly sought after "Iris". The Vase measures approximately 8 3/8" tall and is 6 1/2" outside handle measurement. The Vase measures 3 3/8" deep.
The Vase displays very Natural Embossed Iris Flowers in a White Glaze with Pale Pink Overspray and Yellow Flower Centers. The Background is a very pleasing Salmon Pink that graduates to a Sage Green overspray on the foot. The Iris's are blooming and have embossed Medium Green Colored Leaves nestled underneath them. You can see Iris Flower Buds that haven't quite opened yet as well. The Piece is accented on each side with handles that start at the waist and extend upwards to the shoulder of neck of the vase. I would call these Stepped Buttress Style Handles.
The Vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. There are no excuses to be made for this piece as it is an excellent example in both form and Glaze. The Vase is signed on the bottom with the impressed "Roseville" mark along with the mold number "922-8". There is also a hand inscribed "x" which is most likely the finisher's mark. There is also a couple of illegible grease pencil marks from the artist as well.
This is a very lovely piece of Art Pottery made by Roseville Pottery. I'm sure the lucky buyer will be delighted with their purchase. The Pink Pillow Vase is not as common as the Blue so you pink Iris Collectors do not let this one slip by. This piece was made, Circa 1939
