Lot No. 1008
Artist: Mattie Foglesong
Description: Very well done carved mat vase with purple flowers against a rich green mat ground, possibly the work of Mattie Foglesong in 1909. Marks include the Rookwood logo, date, shape 917 B, an impressed V and the incised initials MF. There are two short tight firing lines at the rim and also a tiny glaze nick. Height is 9 7/8 inches. Foglesong is supposed to have left Rookwood in 1902 but the signature seems to be hers. We have seen a few pieces signed MF in 1909 that are always of superior quality regardless.
Estimate: $600.00 - $800.00
