Marie Longworth Nichols founded Rookwood Pottery in 1880. During the early years, the pottery was not financially successful but was supported by the Nichol's family wealth. Over the years, they employed numerous artists to paint and design their wares.
One of the most recognizable critters that Rookwood pottery ever produced is the Rook and was the mascot of Rookwood pottery. The Rook bookends were designed by William McDonald . The glaze on these rook bookends is known as Madder Wine which, as you can see, is an interesting brownish red. It is atypical to find these bookends in madder wine, normally they are found in blue.
Exceptional bookends in that they have no damage, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze, no repairs and very minor crazing. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process including glaze misses and glaze pops. Dimensions are below.
Authentic and marked appropriately with the Rookwood logo and shape. H: 5 1/2", Base: 5 1/2" x 3 1/4", Length: 5 1/2" ID 1611
