For sale is a very nice vase made by The Weller Pottery Company of Zanesville, Ohio. The vase is from Weller's highly collected and very desirable "Greora" line of art pottery. This vase is a nice cabinet size at measures 5" tall and is 4" in diameter at the top outside measurements. The foot has a diameter of 2 5/8".
The vase displays a classic shape with an embossed organic leaf and vine belly band. It has an outstanding mottled matte hunter green glaze over a matte copper to black glazed body that is very similar to Weller's Coppertone line. The upper part of the vessel has the copper with the lower showing the black in the background. This is a wonderful arts and crafts shape with an even better glaze.
The vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. There is crazing on the bottom and cannot be seen when displayed. The vase is not signed however, there is no question that this was made by Weller Pottery as it is a well documented glaze.
Those of you who collect Greora and are looking to add an excellent to outstanding example to their collection do not let this one slip by. This vase is an excellent example of this form and glaze. This vase was made circa 1931-1935.
