For sale is a very nice large piece of art pottery made by The Roseville Pottery Company of Zanesville, Ohio. The pattern is called "Baneda" and it is a lovely large double handled vase. This vase has some size to it as it stands 9 3/8" tall and is 8" in diameter outside handles measurements.
The vase displays a round foot, tapered bulbous shaped body with raised neck accented with 2 large handles on each side. This vase has a medium green with deep blue glaze runs for the background glaze and is absolutely beautiful. It has a horizontal band with vertical ribs accented with burnt orange Pumpkins and yellow gold flowers with green foliage. The vase is finished two scroll shaped handles that attach just under the top lip.
The piece is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. There is "No Crazing". It is hard to find these Green Baneda pieces with no crazing. There is a factory pop on the underside bottom in the outer ring. This is factory and cannot be seen when displayed and considered insignificant. The vase is signed on the bottom with the shape number "596" with a red grease pencil. There is also an incised 4 and a number 9 and a letter X written in a blue green glaze. I believe the 9 to be the size of the vessel.
Baneda has always proven to be a worthy Investment. This pattern has climbed substantially in value through the years. The green is the most desirable to collect in this line. The Red or Pink version bring substantially less in the same form numbers. This is truly a wonderful example of the "Green Baneda Line". This is known as shape number 596-9" in the Roseville catalog and this vase was made circa 1933. I'm quite sure the buyer will very pleased with their purchase.
