For sale is a nice piece of art pottery made by The Roseville Pottery Company of Zanesville, Ohio. The pattern is called "Dahlrose" and the shape is a wall pocket vase. This wall pocket has some size to it as it measures 8" tall and is 6 5/8" wide outside handles measurement.
The wall pocket depicts a typical ovoid shape with triangular buttress style handles connecting the top lip to the upper body of the vessel on each side. The vase has ivory cream colored flowers on a rough textured brown background that resembles the ground. These flowers kind of look like Daises but Roseville decided to call this pattern "Dahlrose" These flowers flow gracefully around the upper portion of the vase. They are connected by sage green stem and leaves. This form is very desirable and shows minimal signs of previous use.
The vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, chips, nicks or dings. The piece is not signed but it does have its original Rosevile Pottery black paper label. This is a well documented pattern in the Roseville catalog pages and was known as shape number 1258-8" in the Roseville Dahlrose pattern line.
This is a wonderful quality Roseville wall pocket vase that is in excellent condition. I'm quite sure the buyer will be very pleased with their purchase. This vase was made during Roseville's middle period circa 1920's.
