Rick Wisecarver of Roseville, Ohio used his talents to bring back the heyday of art pottery. Known for his portraits, he also decorated using the incision work he admired in Weller Dickensware. This old fashioned flower girl is one of those pieces. The two handled slender vase is light in colors of tan and blue. The maiden is framed by two incised trees along the handles forming a pathway for her to walk along. She is dressed in a wide-brimmed, flower adorned bonnet. She is wearing flowing blue skirt, white blouse, pink vest and white peplum. Her stockings are white and her shoes are black with buckles. Her arms are loaded with flowers and basket. Is she going to market? Perhaps. Rick W is incised on the back shoulder of the piece, while the bottom has incised markings of 'Wihoas 1981 R.S.' This vase is in great shape. It measures 7.5 inches tall, 3.25 inches handle to handle, 1 3/4 inches in diameter at the mouth, and 2 inches across the base. There is one rough spot from a tiny bit of stray clay near the top during production.
