ROSEVILLE 4" HANDLE VASE in Jonquil Circa 1931
Beautiful HANDLE VASE made by Roseville Pottery from the JONQUIL line.
Jonquil is a popular "middle-period" line introduced by Roseville in 1931. The line features clusters of three white daffodils with yellow centers and green leaves on a textured, brown body. It continues to be one of Roseville's most sought-out lines even today.
The vase stands approximately 4 ¼” high and has a rim diameter of 4 ½”. It has double handles and is great condition other than an ⅛" wide spot of missing glaze near one of the clusters. Please review photographs carefully.
The piece is not marked Roseville as early pieces were marked with a sticker, many which have been been long lost.
About Roseville Pottery Company: Roseville Pottery Company was founded in 1890 by J.F. Weaver in Roseville, Ohio. 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. Until releasing its first high quality art pottery line, Rozane in 1900, Roseville produced primarily utilitarian ware. The Rozane line was designed to compete against the growing popularity of Rookwood and Weller spurred by the Arts and Crafts movement.
Demand for the more expensive, hand-crafted art pottery declined in the early teens and Roseville shifted production to more commercially produced pottery. In 1917, Frank Ferrell became art director and produced many of today’s most collectible Roseville patterns. Roseville produced its final designs in 1953 and ceased operations the following year.
