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 vase is a nice cabinet size as it stands 6 3/8" tall and is 5 1/4" in diameter.
The pattern displays very detailed embossed Maple shaped leaves and clusters of bush berries dangling or growing from a stem out of the leaves. The twig handles rises from the foot on both sides and one grows into the mid section and the other towards the neck of the vase. The background of the vase resembles that of tree bark with a horizontal grain thus giving this vase 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 vase is 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 vase is signed on the bottom with Roseville U.S.A. in raised relief along with the mold number 29-6". There is the number p and a letter P written in a black grease pencil or deep blue glaze. This was more than likely was the finishers numbers.
This is a nice cabinet size in this Roseville Line. This is a lovely piece of art pottery in a very desirable pattern. The mold is crisp and the detail is just wonderful. I'm sure the buyer will not be disappointed. This vase was made circa 1941.
