For sale is wonderful iridescent art pottery vase made by The Weller Pottery Company of Zanesville, Ohio. The pattern is called "Lasa" and it depicts a very detailed water and mountain scene. The vase is rather large as it measures just shy of 11 3/4" tall and 3" wide at the top opening outside measurement.
The vase displays a lake and mountain scene looking out at this from on shore. The scene never repeats and is continuous in design. You can even see the clouds that appear to be moving through the air. This is one of my favorite patterns as it really takes you back to nature. Living here in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire I see this sight on a daily basis.
Lasa was considered an art line with many hours creating this unique glaze. There were several firings done on each individual pot to create the depth and detail of each piece. The rose hues in the iridescence above the mountain give the appearance of a sun setting. There are teal hues in the mountains and the contrast from the black outlining to the trees and leaves is quite stunning.
The piece is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, or chips. There are some glaze misses and some scratches, but nothing too obtrusive. The piece is not signed but there is no mistake as this being made by Weller as it is a well documented "Lasa" pattern.
This lovely vase was made circa 1920.
