During the 1930s, the Roseville company designed and introduced some of their most popular lines. Possibly one of the most well-known Roseville mid year lines, blackberry, this pattern was introduced to the market place in 1932. In a band just below the two handles near the top vines of leaves and fruits circle the vase. The designers of the company must have been in a rustic frame of mind during this time as several of the patterns exhibited textured themes and earthy hues. The granular background enhances the look of the pattern with ripe fruits ready to harvest while the leaves begin to reveal that autumn is just around the corner. A classic pattern highly desired in the collecting world today. This vase, shape number 576–8, stands 8 3/8” tall, measures 5 1/2” between the outside of the handles and 3 1/4” across the base. After thorough examination and cleaning, I find no chips, cracks, damage or repairs. The inside is clean showing no residue from use. For the most part, the patterns created by the Roseville company during their midyears period were not marked other than with a paper label. The picture of the bottom shows the label intact and for the most part in excellent condition. I also pictured a half inch long minute ridge of pottery formed during production. This will not even be classified as a flaw, just mention for accuracy. A spectacular example of quality Roseville ready for any decor. I’ve included a number of pictures for your viewing.
