Welcome to Antiques & Moore! This listing is for a lovely Rookwood Art Pottery Arts & Crafts Period vase, shape #2111, dated 1928. Measures 6 1/4" high with a 2 3/4" diameter base.

The vase is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs and any crazing is extremely faint. We found no flaws on this lovely vase. The Rookwood Pottery Company was founded by Maria Longworth Nichols in 1880 and won numerous prestigious awards with their early pottery. However, over the years she became less involved with the company and in 1890 the Rookwood Pottery Company was reorganized with William Taylor becoming President.
Rookwood is considered the premier name in American Art Pottery and even the more common pieces of the production ware period are collected for their elegant beauty. The Depression was difficult for the Rookwood factory although they continued to operate until 1967 when the factory was finally forced to close. We at Antiques & Moore have been in the Antiques business for over 30 years and try to describe our items as accurately as possible.
