Still popular today, the Weller pottery Coppertone line was originally introduced in the late 1920s during the Art Deco period. Pieces were produced in assorted shape and size vases, flower pots and yard art items. As many of the objects d’ art in this line work as table top items, Weller also produce many large sizes such as floor vases and even bird baths. The spectacular example is a mammoth size flared vase measuring just over 15” tall and 9 1/4” across the top. The color consist of a perfect mottling of green and black basically in a consistent pattern covering the entire exterior. The bottom actually has a dark blue glaze applied similar to what you find on Weller bedford matte examples produced early in the 20th century. Inscribed only with the letter “A“, Coppertone examples can either be found with Weller or “Hand Made” inscribed but sometimes have no markings at all since some of the vases would have been hand thrown by a potter and inscribed differently. Thorough examination reveals no chips, cracks, damage or repairs. I see no staining or residue on the inside from use. As can be imagined, the vase is quite heavy weighing in at 9.5 lbs before packing. It will need to be shipped via FedEx ground home delivery in an oversize box, fully insured. A fantastic example to accent any room of the house. I provided a number of pictures for your viewing including actual measurements in two of the photos.
