The Weller Pottery of Ohio produced the Turkis line from the late 1920s until about 1933. This line consisted of very simple yet elegant deco style shapes with a maroon base color with a dripping green over glaze. This created a very cool blended glaze effect. Not a large number of pieces were produced originally, hence, Turkis is difficult to find in today’s pottery markets. Also, when I do see examples for sale, they are 10” and under in height. This floor vase stands a monumental 13 7/8” tall with a top 5 1/4” across. The vase measures approximately 8” across the widest area of the body, the base 5 1/4” diameter. I can find no chips, cracks, damage or repairs to this vase. I can find no chips, cracks, damage or repairs to this vase. There is no staining or residue on the inside from use. I will mention and as pictured several pinhead glaze pops near the base as well as several extremely minor scratches on the body. None of these take away from the awesomeness and value of this wonderful handled floor vase. I’ve included a number of pictures of different angles for your viewing.
