- Quantity Available: 1
For Sale is a very Rare piece of Art Pottery made by The Cambridge Pottery Company of Cambridge, Ohio. The Item is a Vase and the pattern is "Lily Pads". It is done in an absolutely beautiful Arts and Crafts Deep Rich Matte Green Glaze.
The Vase has a rather interesting shape and I would call it a "Tapered Cylindrical" shape. The Vase depicts a beautiful Arts and Crafts Pattern of "Lily Pads". There are 3 uniquely shape Lily Pads surrounding the vessel. The form is mold made but I firmly believe the definition in the Lily Pads were tooled or enhanced by the Potter. When the thick tooled lily Pad design was added, the form took on more of a hand thrown look. Any unevenness around the rim or in the thickness of the walls is a direct result of the "Tooled" process. It gives this vessel a definitive hand-thrown appearance. Maybe that is what the final applications of the tooling and heavy matte green glaze were indented to create. The definition in the Lily Pads and Stems is wonderful. The Matte Green Glaze is one of the best I have ever seen for richness in color tone.
The Vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. There are a few areas on the vase that are light in the Glaze. This is common on this form as I have only seen 2 others in my 36+ years as a dealer collector and their glaze was quite similar. The piece is unsigned but it displays that Ohio Valley Clay beneath the matt green glaze. You can see the 3 rectangular shaped stilt marks on the bottom. This helped tremendously in identifying the manufacturer of this Vase.
This is a wonderful and Arts & Crafts Style Vase. It has a Great Theme and it is considered quite rare!! I feel the Matte Green Glaze rivals that of Grueby, Weller, Roseville and Hampshire Pottery. This vase was made during the height of the Arts and Crafts Movement, Circa 1900-1910. This would look outstanding on that Stickley Arts and Crafts style Bookcase. I'm quite sure the buyer of this will be quite pleased.
