During the period of the mid/late 1920s into the early 1930s, the Roseville company began experimenting with glazes to create unique blended and mottled results. One such pattern, an obscure line, would be Cremona introduced to the market in 1928. Overshadowed by more flashy lines such as Futura, 1928 and sunflower, 1930, this pattern utilized simple deco shapes with an arrowhead plant as the main attraction. These pieces were covered in either a light blue, light green, pink or cream colored modeled glaze with the subject highlighted in either pale aqua or green glaze. This pattern was produced in assorted vase sizes and shapes, bowls with matching frogs, and a few other miscellaneous objects. This example would be considered one of the larger pieces of the line, standing a full 10 1/4” tall the the top measuring 4 3/4” handle to handle, base 4” diameter. Examples from the middle period were never marked other than with a triangular label, usually not present on pieces today. Thorough examination reveals no damage or repairs on this excellent vase. I’ve cleaned it thoroughly so it is ready for display. No staining or residue on the inside from prior use. Due to the nature of this type of glaze, there are areas with less of the pink color and more underline cream colored clay showing through especially around the base. For the most part, this vase is very evenly glazed. I will mention a tiny cluster of pinpoint bubbles near one handle occurs during the manufacturing process, as pictured. An extremely minor aspect which does not detract from the elegance of this example. A great centerpiece for an art deco or mid century modern style. I’ve included a number of pictures of this item for your viewing.
