Since the founding on November 27, 1880, the Rookwood company has created an infinite number of masterpieces by world renowned artists. Over the decades of operation many different styles, shapes and glazes took center stage in the marketplace. Early on one such Vogue was the standard glaze examples created in the late 1800s into the early 1900s. These often consisted of a background in shades of brown and tan with highly detailed florals, animals and people used as the subject matter. This line normally found in vase and ewer shapes, we have a rare spiral mold bowl. Sprays of yellow five petal wild roses adorn both the outside and interior of this exquisite example. The decoration almost appears real as it is executed so well. The bottom markings indicate this example was created in 1894, shape number 739 in a white base clay (W). From research, I believe the artist cipher identifies John Hamilton Delaney Wareham as the creator. Mr Wareham joined the company in 1893 and worked his entire career at Rookwood until his passing in 1954. He spent much of his career in management, hence his works seldom surface in the marketplace today. The bowl stands 4 3/4” tall and measures 8 1/4” across at the widest. An ultrafine crazing covers the surface of the piece primarily visible in the lighter colored background. After thorough inspection, there are no chips, cracks, damage or repairs. I see no staining or residue on the inside from use. I will mention and as pictured some minor wear/fine scratching on the very bottom of the inside possibly due to the use of a flower frog at one point. This issue does not detract from the sheer beauty and elegance of this example. I’ve included many pictures for your viewing, a wonderful item for any collection.
