BIG Rookwood c1907 Arts Crafts Matte Green Owl Pottery Figural Pitcher Jug

Dated "VII" and impressed mold number 1171. Hand thrown and detailed and is not a production piece....very large measuring 10 1/2" tall and 7" diameter across the top opening....very heavy. There were 8 mugs made for every pitcher, and I have only seen a few mugs...this is a rare piece. The owl is wrapped in oak leaves and has a sharp upwards glance....acorns adorn the handle. Very solid weighing 8 pounds. There is one small impact-point to the rim, two hairlines, and one glaze pop...I think hairline is an over-statement since they are totally solid and do not go through the pottery or to the other side even...no cracks...no breaks and no repairs. I have black lit this and it is completely all original without any restorations or repairs. Apparently a child had a pencil and made some marks to the interior...and there is a little splotch of paint. All will come off with diligent cleansing. As I have mentioned, this is quite a hard to find example, and a rather worthy investment. I look at this and think it would look great with a room full of mission oak furniture as this could be used for at least a part of the definition of arts and crafts.
