Ruskin Pottery was founded in England in 1896 and was named after, and dedicated to, the artist and influential social thinker John Ruskin.
The Ruskin Pottery made some of the finest pottery during the English Arts and Crafts movement, in a wide range of shapes and glazes.
This vase has both an interesting shape and an interesting glaze. The vase is round at the bottom, and then becomes six sided up to the shoulder, then returns to a round shape just below the nicely formed lip.
The glaze is really outstanding: a dark blue a bit past the halfway point with thick drips that becomes a lighter blue and white, almost an ocean-like effect. The upper part of the vase is beautifully colored in shades of green/blue and tan. The glaze is so complex it is difficult to describe, but the pictures will tell the tale.
The vase has the impressed RUSKIN mark, and a small tag with a collection number.
About 5 3/4" tall.
