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. A rare find would be a vase shaped like a strawberry pot; the main opening is circled by alternate smaller openings on the side of the piece. This style pot would be used to grow strawberries so that the fruit would not lie directly on the ground but rather hang while ripened. Since many of Weller’s pieces in this line were used, examples in factory original condition are very rare indeed. I do not believe this strawberry pot was ever used as I see no calcium residual on the inside or any staining from the soil. The colors are beautifully blended to form a mottling effect with splotches of more or less solid green positioned around the outside surface. The vase stands just under 10” tall with the widest opening measuring 4 3/4” diameter across the top. Each of the side pockets extend 1 5/8” from the side of the vase. The base measures 4 3/8” diameter. After thorough examination, I can fine no damage or repairs to this item. As stated earlier, I see no residual or staining on the inside from use. I have acetoned the entire piece to verify no repairs. A fantastic example rarely found in the market today!
