This Owens Lightweight vase stands 7" high by 4.25" in diameter. It has a handsome vase form, with a tapered neckline, and a bulb-form opening, a very pretty vessel. Owens Lightweight is akin to Owens' Utopian standard glaze, except is is lighter in weight, with a thinner wall to the pot, and the artwork is superior to standard Utopian glazes. This vase was decorated by Cecil Excel, whose specialty was Lightweight form decoration. He decorated this vase with a what appear to be Lady Slipper blossoms and leaves, fine, fine artwork. It is glazed in Owens signature Lightweight colors, rich, deep chocolate brown, almost black, standard glaze with a gorgeous green blush accenting glaze, and very complementary colors in the artwork. This vase is well marked, and it bears Excel's cipher on the base. It is in mint condition, no apologies. This Owens Lightweight vase makes a stunning presentation, with stellar artwork!
