Original Roseville Della Robbia Vase

⭕ This vase is one of the most beautiful pieces of Roseville Pottery I have ever owned.Its now time for someone else to experience its beauty in their collection. Here is a little history that I had found on the internet about Roseville Pottery and this line Della Robbia. Roseville Pottery began with the 1892 acquisition of the J. B. Owens company, which had been founded in 1885 in Roseville, Ohio, by a group of Ohio businessmen including George Young, C. F. Allison, and several others. As the popularity of its original lines of stoneware began to grow, Roseville Pottery needed to expand, and they did so with the 1892 and 1898 purchases of the Linden Avenue Plant of the Clark Stoneware Co. and the Midland Pottery respectively. Operations slowly started to shift to Zanesville, Ohio, the town where the Linden Ave. Plant was located and the site of subsequent factory acquisitions. This region of Ohio had become a center of ceramics production due to the rich local clays. By about 1910, all of the work had shifted to Zanesville and operations in Roseville ceased. Nevertheless, Roseville Pottery had not yet begun to make the finer art pottery for which they are known today. Under the artistic direction of the English potter Frederick H. Rhead, the firm produced several great Art Pottery lines including Della Robbia, Mongol, Egypto, Woodland, Olympic, Fudji, Azurean, and others.The two best carvers of the Della Robbia lines were Mr. Rhead himself and Helen Smith.The initials on the bottom of the vase are a S with an H intertwined.The vase is crisp and in the condition it was 100 years ago. It has no chips, cracks or repairs.This was done prior to firing and is completely glazed over.

It measures 11 inches tall and 7 1/2 inches wide from side to side.The opening at the top is 2 inches
