Weller Pottery Large Wild Rose Vase
Product Description And Additional Pictures
The Weller Pottery Company was established in Zanesville, Ohio, in 1882, the outcome of a one-kiln operation that founder Sam Weller had operated in Fultonham. In 1895 the company entered the art pottery field, and over time grew into one of the largest and most esteemed art potteries in the country. The Great Depression negatively impacted the financial fortunes of the company, and triggered a slow, steady decline in sales until the pottery closed in 1948. We are featuring a lovely vase from Weller's 'Wild Rose' line, which went into production in the mid-1930's. This vase stands an impressive 9-3/4" tall and 7-3/4" wide handle-to-handle. It is 4" in diameter across the base and is 5" in diameter across the top. This large and striking vase features flowing lines and elegant handles. Finished in an overall matt glaze of soft green, the front of the vase features two large, white wild roses with darker green centers and leaves. A very light brown wash accents the petals, floral centers and branches. The base is incised 'Weller' in script and bears a 'C', which denoted the artisan who worked on the vase. This vase is in near mint condition, with no cracks, chips, fleabites or repairs. It would be an important acquisition to any Weller Pottery Company or American Art Pottery collection, and would simply look lovely gracing a table or a mantel.
