Fresh from a huge estate sale in Zanesville, Ohio comes this nice pair of Weller cameo vases. Uniquely rectangular in shape and finished in the wonderful semi-matte aqua glaze that was so popular during the era (c.1935) and still highly desired by collectors of art pottery. The embossed white roses are on one side, the 'back' is plain. Measuring 9" tall, 5" wide and 3" deep these are a matching pair with the same embossed marks, artists caricature and rather extensive glaze crazing. The sidewalls are about 1/4" thick and the vases are quite heavy at almost 3 pounds each.
No damage to either besides the mentioned crazing. No chips, cracks or restoration but several production glitches that are common to this type of ware. The close-up photo shows a glaze miss. If the stylized florals are not to your tastes (either:) they, of course, may be displayed or used backwards.
Weller Pottery was founded in 1872 and operated in Zanesville from 1882-1948. They were one of the very many potteries found in east-central Ohio, many of which were represented in the above-mention sale. We purchased several other examples which will be listed soon.
