You are buying a Peters and Reed Pottery Moss Aztec vase in the rare flower pattern from the 1920's. It is Peters and Reed Pottery catalog number 412. The Moss Aztec line was created to satisfy the desire for an original idea in pottery for use in homes where displaying flowers was part of furnishing the home.
Peters and Reed Moss Aztec is a difficult line to collect as a very limited number of pieces still exist. Collectors of arts and crafts and Moss Aztec consider the line highly collectible. This hanging basket is hard to find and most would have been used and destroyed from use. A lovely design of flowers surround the bowl. A true pleasure to see. Displays perfectly from all sides and angles. The perfect size to fit in your curio cabinet. You are just a few mouse clicks from having this delivered right to your door.
