Lot No. 1348

Manufacturer: Rookwood

Marks include the Rookwood logo, date, shape 907 D, incised Chief Wolf Robe (Cheyenne) and the artist’s monogram. There is also a wheel ground X although we see no reason for this piece to be designated a second. There is fine overall crazing and a faint line at the rim. Height is 10 1/2 inches. Typically well done portrait by Ms. Young.
