Today we are thrilled to be offering for sale a truly beautiful 1930s Weller Pottery Roba Desert Rose vase! In 1872, Samuel A. Weller founded Weller Pottery in Fultonham, Ohio, United States. Originally, his business consisted of a small cabin and one beehive kiln, and Weller produced flower pots, bowls, crocks, and vases. By 1905, Weller Pottery was the largest pottery in the country. It mass-produced art pottery until about 1920, and it produced commercial lines until the pottery closed in 1948. This gorgeous Roba vase was introduced in the 1930’s and features an naturalistic Art Deco/Art Nouveau textured body, with matte green faded to white glazed background. The vase features branch-like handles; the left handle is adorned with two delicate desert roses. The piece is marked on the bottom with the impressed “Weller Pottery Since 1872”. The vase presents beautifully and is in very good vintage condition, with very minimal display wear. No chips, cracks or restorations. Add fabulous art deco style and elegance to your home with an iconic ceramic art piece from an iconic American company! Fresh to the market!
