For sale is a wonderful piece of art pottery made by The Grueby Pottery Company of Boston, Mass. I have a "Squat Pentagon" shaped planter that is done in Grueby's most desired leathery matte green glaze. The planter stands 2 1/8" tall and is 6" in diameter.

The planter has a deep rich wonderful matte green glaze. It depicts beautifully tooled and carved wide body leaves that rise up from the bottom, roll over the waist of the vessel and then rise up to the lip or top opening. Once at the top the leaves curl back towards you with the centers forming the points on the opening. There are 5 of these leaves that curl back with the leaves underneath or in between each of them at the top opening. When you look down into the planter it displays a unique star or pentagon shape.

The planter is considered to be in very good to excellent condition as there are no major cracks, nicks, or chips. There are some rough areas on a few high points and I can only see 1 teeny glaze fleck but nothing to get excited about. The inside shows a pea green waterproofing glaze. The piece is signed with the impressed Grueby leaf logo along with "Grueby Pottery Boston U.S.A." circular mark. There is also the artist initials "ERF" incised for the Grueby Artist Miss Ellen R. Farrington that carved this piece. There are also the numbers "7-26" incised into the bottom as well. I believe this was the month "July", and day the "26th", but not the year it was made.

Those of you who collect Grueby art pottery vessels know that this is somewhat a rare find. There are very few examples of this vase documented in past sales with the auction houses. Of all the art pottery manufacturers of the day, not one single art pottery company had any stronger influence on the Arts and Crafts pottery movement than Grueby. Grueby Pottery has always proven a worthy investment as they do nothing but rise in value year after year. I would say this piece of art pottery was made circa 1904-1907.

This piece would look outstanding on that Stickley, Mission, arts and crafts style bookcase. I'm sure the buyer will be extremely happy with their purchase.
