For sale is a beautiful pattern of art pottery made by The Roseville Pottery Company of Zanesville, Ohio. The pattern is called "Bushberry" and it is done in the most desirable blue background glaze. The item is a set of low profile candlesticks. The candlesticks are 2 1/8" tall and is 5 1/8" in diameter.
The pattern displays very detailed embossed Maple shaped leaf and clusters of bush berries dangling or growing from a stem out of the leaves on the front and only the stems on the back side. The twig handles rises from the foot on both sides and one grows into the top section just below the top of the candlestick. The background of the candlesticks resembles that of tree bark with a horizontal grain thus giving these candlesticks that life like appearance. The background glaze is a country slate blue with wonderful deep sage greens applied to the embossed leaves and rolling off to the edges with brown Bushberries.
The candlesticks are considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, chips, nicks, or dings. It is amazing that the twig handles have survived all this time with even a flea nick. The candlesticks are signed on the bottom with Roseville U.S.A. in raised relief along with the mold number 1147-C.S. Only one of them has added 8 and x written in a blue glaze. These are more than likely the finishers numbers.
This is a wonderful set of candlesticks in this Roseville Line. The mold is crisp and the detail is just wonderful. I'm sure the buyer will not be disappointed. These candlesticks were made circa 1941.
