Peters & Reed Sprigged Medusa Standard Glaze Bulb Vase.
The Peters & Reed Standard Glaze items often have sprigged additions, and this bulb vase is no exception. It has a multi color silhouette bust of Medusa. Medusa is a character from Greek Mythology; she was a gorgon with snakes for hair. Looking directly at Medusa would turn a man to stone. Luckily, this rendition of Medusa doesn't have such power!
The vase body is a high gloss glaze in shades of brown and the sprigged decorations on both the front and back are deep turquoise blue with yellow, green and brown accents. It has a unique shape with two tiny handles. It is fully glazed on the inside and outside.
It measures about 4 ½" tall.
Condition: no cracks, crazing, nicks or chips. There are three pinpoint spots where the brown glaze skips and one spot that looks like a tiny piece of the applied `sprigged' design landed on the top section of the vase. It is under the glaze and is a manufacturing flaw.
This is a lovely piece of Peters & Reed, and this is a design that isn’t often seen. Don’t miss this terrific chance to purchase a gift or add to a collection!
