John Peters and Adam Reed founded their company just before 1900 in Zanesville, Ohio and operated the company until 1922 when it became known as Zane Pottery. Various lines were created including this standard shaded brownware decorated with applied pottery spriggs, all with a high glaze. Because many of the shapes were Weller molds it is unclear if they purchased the molds or pottery blanks from Weller. This octagon shaped vase is composed of four plain panels and four adorned by floral spriggs in shades of green and rose against a background of shaded brown. It stands 5" tall and has no cracks, chips or crazing. Unmarked. There are felt pads on the base.
