Lot No. 1347

Manufacturer: Rookwood

Artist: Sara Sax

Description: Large and impressive Rookwood French Red vase with stylized cherry blossoms incised and painted by Sara Sax in 1922. The flowers are done in French Red with orange centers, green leaves and black stems. All leaves, flowers and stems are first incised, presumably to keep the glazes in place and then painted with the glossy enamel like colors which have cooperated nicely and stayed where put. A dark green mat finish background contrasts nicely with the gloss flora. Marks include the Rookwood logo, the date, shape number 2301 B and Miss Sara’s impressed monogram. Height 13 1/8 inches. The vase is uncrazed and quite spectacular. And yes, we do love our French Red pieces.

Estimate: $8,000.00 - $10,000.00
