John Peters and Adam Reed founded their company just before 1900 in Zanesville, Ohio and operated the company until 1922 when it became known as Zane Pottery. Various lines were created including this standard shaded brownware decorated with applied pottery spriggs, all with a high glaze. Because many of the shapes were Weller molds it is unclear if they purchased the molds or pottery blanks from Weller. This squatty, round vase with small flared neck sits on three pad-like feet and is 4" tall and 4 1/2" across. Decorated with three floral spriggs in shades of green and rose against a background that shades from dark to rust colored brown. There are no chips, cracks or crazing; several small spots where on the inside of the neck where the glaze appears worn or missed in production. Unmarked. There are felt pads on the feet.
