For Sale is a beautiful piece of Art Pottery made by The Roseville Pottery Company of Zanesville, Ohio. The shape is a Vase and the pattern is the highly sought after "Iris" Pattern. The opening of the Vase measures 4 1/4" in diameter, inside rim measurement.
The Vase displays very natural embossed Iris flowers in a creamy white glaze with Salmon colored accents on the petal with pale purple or Lilac flower centers. The Background is a very pleasing two tone Brown graduates to a Darker Brown in color towards the bottom. 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 just shy of the top 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 "928-12". There is also a freehand inscribed I or J with a period and a lower case h or number 4 written in a grease pencil. These marks are most likely the artist and finishers marks.
This is a very lovely piece of Art Pottery made by Roseville Pottery. I'm sure the buyer will be delighted with their purchase. This piece was made, Circa 1939.
