Rookwood Pottery was founded in 1880 by Marie Longworth Nichols. Rookwood pottery's initial work demonstrated an Oriental and European influence. In the early 1900's Rookwood pottery quickly moved into the arts and crafts and art nouveau styles. During this time, Rookwood introduced glazes such as Iris, Vellum, Sea Green, Ariel Blue and painted mattes. Around 1905, Rookwood pottery introduced its production line of pottery. Rookwood's production pottery was simply glazed and not artist decorated or signed. As with most of the American art pottery companies, Rookwood's best production pieces are its earlier examples.

This lovely small tray, circa 1945, is from Rookwood's mid-century production line of pottery. A large grape leaf is the background for a bunch of grapes. Glazed in an all-over shaded light-to-medium brown high-gloss finish. The leaf-shaped tray measures 7" in length and 6" in width. Stamped with the Rookwood flames and roman numeral XLV, designating 1945, with pattern number "1639". There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint condition.
