Rare and all original as found. 1918 Rookwood Vellum Vase table lamp signed by Harriet E Wilcox. The 6-piece fitted and lathe turned wood base is boasting it's original patina of 97 years. The double pull chains are functional and the lamp can be rewired for modern use. The multi-color florals are vivid and attractive, displaying the appropriate crazing we would expect. The top rim and the base both have a solid black band accenting the pink solids and bright floral's . This is a very bold trim color as well as practical. The vase was to sit on the dark wood lamp base and the dark rims provide a smooth transition from the pottery to the lamp. The vase is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. IT IS RARE TO FIND ANTIQUE POTTERY IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
