We have an vase from the Roseville pottery company of a quintessential example of the Art Deco era celebrated in this country during the 1920s-1930s. The line, sunflower, was first introduced to the market in 1930. The pattern came in about 30 different shapes, primarily vases but several low bowls, a wall pocket, etc. were also produced. From research, the catalogue number of this particular vase is noted 513-5. A ring of beautiful sunflower blooms circles the top near the rim with rich textured green transitioning to deep blue towards the base. This example stands 5 1/4” tall and measures almost 5” across the widest area of the body. The vase is clean of any chips, cracks, damage or repairs. The inside is clean with no staining or residue from use. I will mention a couple of manufacturing issues which really do not detract at all from the look or value of this piece. The first is a ridge on the inside which is not a crack but most likely from the molding process at the seam of the mold. It can be felt but again, it is not a crack or damage. The other aspect is on one handle a darker colored glaze line appears to be a crack near the rim. Again, this is not a crack, evidently during the glazing process a slight indention at the handle accumulated a thicker amount of the dark glaze. On the same handle is a popped glaze bubble which can be seen in the last picture. All of these are extremely minor and do not detract at all from this wonderful item. To insure safe delivery, this item will be double boxed and shipped FedEx ground/home delivery, fully insured. I’ve included a number of pictures of this vase in a hard to find pattern by Roseville.
