Lot No. 0044

Manufacturer: Weller

Artist: Mae Timberlake

Description: Rare Weller Hudson or Silvertone Variant done by Mae Timberlake. The two rope handles from gnarly roots or vines which bracket a male lion stalking along. Raindrops pelt the lion and other roots are applied to the surface of the vase. Signed with the half kiln “Weller Pottery” ink stamp logo and signed “Timberlake” just above the foot. Height 6 5/8 inches. Excellent original condition with some crazing. Rather amazing color treatment and composition. We are not sure of the scope of Weller’s Silvertone Variants and its most unusual Hudsons but we like them.

Estimate: $5,000.00 - $7,000.00
