This Weller-LaSa Lustre vase with a painted landscape of trees is made by by John Lessell, between 1910-1924. The LaSa line was introduced by Lessell, who later became art director for Weller Pottery in 1920. Weller Pottery began production in 1872 and was founded by Samuel Weller. This piece has incised and painted metallic decoration a cluster of trees in a serene landscape, surrounded by beautifully painted puffy red clouds in the sky, at sunset. There is a sun setting behind the mountains as well. The swirling lines and soft brushstrokes, art created from and inspired by nature, as well as expressive organic designs are all qualities from the Art Nouveau era found on this art pottery vase. The vase measures 10 3/4 of an inch tall by 3 3/8 inches at the mouth and 6" at the widest point. The vase is signed with the name of "Weller Lasa" on the foot of the vase. The vase is in great condition with vibrant metallic colors intact. It had been previously drilled on the bottom of the vase, and has been repaired ( see photo of the bottom of vase) A real beauty for an Art Nouveau collection. Circa 1920.
