Today we are thrilled to be offering for sale a truly beautiful and substantial 1920’s Roseville Pottery Vista/Roseville Forest #134-18″ vase! The Roseville Pottery Company was an American art pottery manufacturer in the 19th and 20th centuries. Along with Rookwood Pottery and Weller Pottery, it was one of the three major art potteries located in Ohio around the turn of the 20th century. Though the company originally made simple household pieces, the Arts and Crafts–inspired designs proved popular, and Roseville pieces are now highly sought after by collectors. The company operated from 1890 until 1953. This gorgeous Vista/Roseville Forest floor vase was introduced in the 1920’s and features scenes of palm trees decorated in semi-gloss pastels in place greens and lavenders. The vase features four “buttress” handles. The piece might have been intended to be used as a lamp base as the top features a rim on which one could place a lamp vase cap, however this one was never drilled. The vase is marked on the bottom “134-18″”. The piece presents beautifully and in very good vintage condition, with very minimal display wear and very light scuffing around the bottom. There is normal very light surface crazing to glaze. The vase rocks very slightly when on a flat surface due to the way the mold was cast; the rocking can be easily remedied by using felt pads on the bottom of the piece (which we had on but removed to photograph the piece). 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! This rare and hard-to-find Roseville floor vase will make a crowning addition to any fine Roseville collection. Fresh to the market!
Dimensions: 17-3/4″ in height, 7-3/4″ in diameter (base), 4-5/8″ in diameter (top), 2-1/2″ in diameter (mouth of vase)
