Manufacturer: Rookwood

Artist: Sallie Toohey

Description: Impressive Rookwood Z-Line oil lamp by Sallie Toohey with conventionalized treatment of life size Easter Lilies incised and painted on both front and back and steadied by a trio of curled leaf feet. The lamp is complete with a removable oil font having a Rookwood pottery shoulder. Combined height is 15 1/2 inches including the brass collar and 7 inches toe to toe. Cast glazed hole underneath. Marked with the company logo, 1903 date, the slightly smudged monogram of Sallie Toohey and shape number 328 AZ. There has been a professional repair mid-body and there are three typical firing separations on the underside because of the added clay of the feet. There is also light peppering and some open bubbles on the flowers. A handsome lamp with bold artwork. Pictured without the font and cap which are available to the purchaser.
