Rookwood Turtleback Vase
The Rookwood Pottery Company of Cincinnati, Ohio iis recognized as one of the premiere manufacturers of American art pottery. This charming vase dates to 1930, the very height of Rookwood's production, which continued well into the 1960s. Known as the "Turtleback" vase, it features five prominent lobes with a necklace of curlicue motifs below the rim. Presented in Rookwood's classic matte mauve glaze with a subtle, pale blue overspray, the vase measures just over 5 inches tall and is in kiln-fresh, vintage condition with no damage or repairs. A lovely Arts & Crafts piece that deserves pride of place in any well designed room.
