Lot No. 1086

Manufacturer: Rookwood

Artist: Sara Sax

Description: Porcelain twin handled urn, nicely decorated front and back, with a floral pattern against a striated blue ground and having a mottled purple interior, the work of Sara Sax in 1928. Marks include the Rookwood logo, date, shape 6010 C, Ms. Sax’ monogram in blue slip and not one, but two wheel ground X’s. We think the reason for the two X’s is this: we have sold the twin to this piece several years ago and it had a firing separation where the base and body meet. We feel the pair were marked as seconds in sympathy and that they were later separated and sold to different buyers. This piece has no issues and is a knockout. Uncrazed and in excellent original condition. Height is 11 3/4 inches. A lovely piece.

Size: 11 3/4”

Estimate: $2,500.00 - $3,500.00
