Impressive display in your home. If you need a decorating statement this is truly it!! This beautiful piece is one that literally cast a spell over you when you look at it! The artist has used this huge vase as his canvas and has painted a beautiful barefooted woman in a long flowing white gown and blue hooded cape. She is holding a precious baby wrapped in a blanket in her arms. She has long beautiful flowing brown hair that cascades down over her shoulders and blows freely in the wind from under her cape. The baby has soft looking golden curls upon his little head. The facial features of the woman and child are very serene and masterfully done. You get a very tranquil feeling just looking at the two of them. The artist has place the woman and child on a blue oval background on the front of the immense vase. On each side of the blue oval he has painted large soft pink roses and muted green leaves on branches. The artist may have chosen light pink roses on this piece because their meaning is associated with gentleness and admiration. Pink roses have a rich history that comes with being one of the longest existing roses known to us - in fact, pink roses have even been depicted in some of the earliest known pieces of art. There is a 3'' glaze hairline, not on the inside. There are no chips; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
Backstamp: Painters pallet with Lenox Belleek ca.1906-1924.
Walter Scott Lenox.was born in 1859 in the "Staffordshire of America": Trenton, N.J. which became the USA's leading ceramics center and boasted some 200 potteries in the 19th century. Lenox worked as a decorator and designer for several Trenton potteries beginning in 1875 and six years later he advanced to design director for Ott & Brewer, then Willets Manufacturing. Both firms eventually failed and Lenox took his skills and expertise and established The Lenox Ceramic Art Company in 1889. From the outset it was organized as an art studio, rather than a factory, and offered one-of-a-kind artwares in lustrous ivory china, rather than a full line of ceramics. The exquisitely painted and modeled vases, pitchers, and tea sets, produced at first by just 18 employees, were met with an enthusiastic reception and carried in the most exclusive shops. By 1897 examples of Lenox's work were included in the collection of the Smithsonian Institution.
