Peters and Reed was founded by John Peters and Adam Reed in 1897. The pottery company was formally incorporated in 1901. The Peters and Reed Company was purchased in 1920 by Harry McClelland and Reed and changed the name to Zane Pottery Company. Peters and Reed pottery was primarily made of red clay from the Zanesville area. However, Zane pottery changed to white clay in 1926.
This vase is from the Landsun line which was produced for quite some time. This line has many different looks to the glaze from soft and blended to very sharp distinctive markings. The Landsun pieces were red clay bodies with glazed bottoms, most of the time. The factory marks are usually shape numbers.
This Landsun scenic vase is in wonderful condition considering it is over 100 years old. Perfect brown tones with green hues and a few trees on rolling hills.
Exceptional vase in that it is undamaged, no cracks, no scratches to glaze. I cannot detect any underglaze crazing. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process including glaze misses and glaze pops. There is a firing flaw on the upper rim and a tiny glaze flake on the bottom rim. Dimensions are below.
