For Sale I have a very nice piece of Art Pottery made by The Weller Pottery Company of Zanesville, Ohio. The Pattern Line is called "Flemish" and the shape can be called either a Planter or Bowl. The Subject matter is the rare "Water Lily" Pattern. The Planter Stands 3 1/8" tall and is 6 5/8" in diameter.

The Planter depicts very naturalistic Water Lily's that are done in Raised relief with a carved border outline. There are Lily Pads and unopened Buds all around the piece. The Colors are rich and Vibrant. The background glaze is a blended Green/Brown in Color. This is very similar to the Woodcraft, and Muskota Colors. One Side depicts a pair of Embossed Water Lily's in Cream with Burgundy to Mauve Accents on the underside Flower along with Yellow Flower Centers. There are unopened Buds on Lily Pads on each side of these 2 Flowers. The opposite side has only one Flower. The Carving and detail in this Planter is like that of a Painting. It displays a very pleasing Art Nouveau Subject matter that will work with most decors.

The Planter is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The top of the Planters shows a few areas where there are glaze misses. This is Factory and NOT damage. The piece is signed on the bottom with "WELLER" in block letters. This is very hard to see but it is there. This Pattern Line was created by Rudolph Lorber. He also created the Forest Line as well. This piece was made from the Early to Middle Period of Weller, Circa 1915-1928.

I have been a Dealer/Collector for some 30+ years and have only seen this Water Lily Planter/ Bowl 1 other time. Those of you who collect Weller and want and excellent example in a Very Hard to find Pattern will be absolutely delighted with their purchase.
