Each of these shell pink lustre Gonder Pottery vases is shaped to be a large five-petal flower. The back of the vase is shaped like a large leaf, with the stem and sepals of the flower clearly defined in the mold. Gonder Pottery was known for its glaze treatments, and the Shell Pink Lustre glaze is a particularly pretty blend of pale blues and greens over the salmon pink providing a pearlized effect.
Made by Gonder Pottery between 1941 and 1957 during the time that the short-lived company was in operation, each pink pottery vase measures 7-1/2 inches tall and stands on a 3-1/2 inch circular base.The sides of the flower extend just over 4 inches wide.
Each vase is marked with the incised "Gonder" signature followed by "U.S.A." The mold number "E-3" is also inscribed in the bottom of each base.
Each has a few glaze slips where the glaze was missed but no damage.
