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 mini sugar bowl, circa 1921, is from Rookwood's early commercial-line of pottery. Glazed in an all-over mottled dusty-rose matt finish. The round bowl measures 3 1/2" across and 2 1/8" in height. Clearly stamped with the Rookwood flames and roman numeral XXI, designating 1921, with pattern number '547'. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint condition. Great little bowl that could be used for many purposes.
