Peters & Reed, Moss Aztec Dragonfly Nut Bowl, Great Arts & Crafts Theme, HTF

$175


For sale is a nice piece of art pottery made by the Peters and Reed Company of Zanesville, Ohio. The shape is a planter or small berry bowl and it is done in the ever popular "Moss Aztec" line of art pottery. The bowl measures 5 1/4" in diameter and is 2 1/8" tall. The inside opening measures 4 1/4" in diameter.

The base clay is a terracotta in color. The planter depicts embossed Dragonflies sitting on a vine. The Dragonflies head is attached to the top lip with the body hanging below the vine. The bowl is glazed in the Moss Aztec technique, which is a terracotta glaze with a Verde green accent applied in the low relief areas. It resembles moss that grows in shady areas as it sits inside the crevices or lower relief areas of the design. There is a fair amount of the green moss in all the low areas of the planter. There is a waterproofing glaze on the interior so you can actually use it.

This bowl is considered to be in very good to excellent condition as there are no cracks, chips, nicks or dings. The vase shows some signs of use but nothing that is obtrusive.This piece is unsigned as is the case with this line however, it is guaranteed to be vintage Peters and Reed from the Moss Aztec line of art pottery.

Peters and Reed Pottery (1897-1919) was bought out in 1920 and the name was changed to Zane Pottery of Zanesville, Ohio. They still produced some of the same styles as Peters and Reed. They changed from red clay to white clay products in 1926. Frank Ferrel designed this line for Peters and Reed. He was employed there from 1906-1918. In 1918 he left Peters and Reed to work for Roseville Pottery.

The piece was made circa 1910-1915.
