We have here quite an obscure line by the Weller pottery company, a Greenbriar vase. Produced in limited quantities in the early 1930s, this line presented similar glaze effects as the Turkis and Greora pieces marketed at the same time period. Greenbriar examples start with a bright green base with overglazes of maroon and a frothy white, resulting in thick coating often running down the sides. These pieces often required additional grinding of the base rim for stabilization. Considered by one reference as quite rare and valuable for the later Weller patterns. These shapes are often simple yet elegant Art Deco styles which actually enhances the glaze and blends colors. Similar in shape and coloring to another example currently listed in my shop, this vase actually measures 6 3/4” tall with the opening spanning just over 5” across. The base measures 3 1/4” diameter. The Weller company most likely placed a paper label on this example as it is not marked on the bottom. The view of the bottom shows the base has been factory ground due to the thickness of the glaze and subsequent dripping during the firing process. Thorough examination reveals no damages or repairs; the inside is clean with no signs of residue or staining. A marvelous example to fit in any art deco room. I’ve included a number of pictures of this nice vase.
