Weller pottery was opened in 1872 by Sam Weller in Fultonham, Ohio. They often used one shape for several lines. The company manufactured hand-decorated pottery in its early years and often were artist signed. Weller produced numerous lines of pottery between 1895 and 1945. The company permanently closed in 1948. The Hobart line was produced from the early through late 1920's. This line includes many figural pieces, some nudes and most commonly found covered a matt turquoise glaze. The deco-style standing figures and their flower frogs are of particular interest even to the most avid collector.
This Flower frog is glazed in a pleasing matt blue turqouise. Highly unusual to find in any condition. He displays well from all angles. This flower frog is paired with a bowl that has 2 intertwined swans. The bowl is not marked. These two pieces are being sold together even though they may not have been made by the same potter. a perfect addition to any pottery collection.
Exceptional set in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze and some very minor underglaze crazing. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process including glaze misses and glaze pops. I cannot detect any repair or modifications.
