A little history about the Western Reserve area: After the formation of the United States, Connecticut ceded most of its western lands to the national government but exempted approximately 3,400,000 acres lying north of latitude 41 degrees and extending 120 miles westward from the Pennsylvania border. This became its Western Reserve. In 1795 it sold most of this land to a group of investors who had formed the Connecticut Land Company and in the following year the company began the survey of the land to prepare it for sale. The survey party was led by Moses Cleaveland, the namesake of Cleveland, Ohio.
Here we have a fine example of a pair of Luster Yellow vases stamped Western Reserve Ceramics from Cleveland Ohio. These were purchased in a little antique mall in the Painesville Ohio area and we believe to have been made in this area possibly at Case Western Reserve University (which has a Ceramics School) or at any number of community activities in this area . These are outstanding pieces with great color and nice shape. Perfect decorative set of vases which display well all the way around. Exceptional original undamaged condition.
Exceptional vases in that they are undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze. Free from crazing. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process including glaze misses and glaze pops. There is no evidence of repair or modification. Dimensions are below. Displays well from all sides.
All pictures are original and un-edited.
