Our first Super Special for Monday, December 9th is from one of Billy Blue Eye’s favorite American pottery companies – Roseville.
Roseville Pottery (1890-1954) is considered to have been one of America’s finest Art Pottery firms and certainly one of its most loved by ceramic collectors world wide. The “Apple Blossom” pattern was first introduced in 1948 and quickly became one of the most popular lines of its time. Collectors were attracted to the hand-painted twig handles, a design feature that is still admired today. This 6.25″ bud vase comes from a crisp mold and is precisely painted. Finished in a Terra-cotta colored glaze the vase is moderately crazed, typical for this pattern, and is bottom incised “Roseville U.S.A. 381-6.”

George Rumrill was commissioned by Red Wing Pottery of Red Wing, Minnesota to produce a series of Rumrill releases under the Red Wing name from 1932 until 1937. At the end of his tenure with Red Wing he returned to Zanesville, Ohio and led Rumrill Pottery into a productive and creative period known as the Ohio Years. During this time a distinctive Rumrill line was successfully introduced that allowed Rumrill to become a respected producer of utilitarian ceramics and Art Pottery.
This 9″ tulip inspired vase is a product of the Ohio Years (1938-1942) and is finished in the Dutch Blue Stipple glaze, one of Rumrill’s most distinctive finishes. Rising from its base the vase unfurls in a scalloped rim. It is in excellent overall condition but does have production pin hole glaze pops which are frequently found in Rumrill ceramics produced during this period. The vase is faintly bottom incised “Rumrill H-11.” (The product number)
