This unusual Rookwood art pottery double handled 8.75" tall vase was hand decorated by highly regarded painted Edward Timothy Hurley (1869-1950). The circa 1943 double handled vase has been made in the form of a campagna urn. The piece has been finished in a soft peach glaze with the front and back featuring large mauve magnolias with wine colored accents along with wine colored buds. The decoration includes large green leaves and stems. The inside of the vase is finished in a rich blue glaze.
The vase is in good condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. As a vintage item, the piece shows signs of age consisting of crazing to the glaze along with crystalline deposits beneath the glaze on the inside. The underside bears Rookwood's impressed "RP" logo along with their characteristic 14 flame mark and the Roman numeral "XLIII", dating the vase to 1943. It is also stamped with shape "6010" and size "E". It carries Hurley's incised "ETH" cypher.
This highly collectible art pottery vase would be a great addition to an existing collection of vintage Rookwood pieces, or works well as a stand alone decorative accent. A lovely piece nicely sized for placement on a table, shelf or mantelpiece.
