Here is a beautiful old Osborne Chicago Studio cachepot, with landscape scenery, encrusted above and below with the lovely Rose and Daisy all over gold pattern. Narrow borders at top and bottom, as well as the faux handles and four little feet are all painted in smooth gold. The hand painted scene is of a landscape featuring a garden wall covered with blooming rose vines, next to a lake with mountains in the distance. The back shows an island in the lake and a broader view of the mountains. A fine black line at top and bottom separates the scene from the gold areas. The interior of the vase is pure white porcelain except for a band of smooth gold at the top.

Measures 9 ¼” tall x 8 ½” wide x 4” deep.

Signed underneath with Osborne etched in script, used 1917-1940 (Reed p. 270, mark 3). The only maker’s mark showing is a stamped "Bavaria"; anything else that was there is covered by the gold.

There are a few little kiln pops from the manufacturing process. But unfortunately, there is a more serious condition issue: At the recessed edge of one rounded corner is a vertical crease deeper than the other three corners - a defect in the pottery (see photo 6), which has turned into a hairline crack continuing downward that goes nearly to the bottom (see photo 8) and can be seen, on close inspection, on inside and outside. We've applied some water-soluble glue to the inside to seal it. This sad reality, along with a few small bits of wear to the gold, moves us to offer this otherwise gorgeous cache pot for this low price.

We hope you’ll take this wonderful piece into your home and enjoy it for years to come, even with its secret flaw. It is even lovelier than the pictures!
