Lot No. 1476

Manufacturer: Rookwood

Artist: Matt Daly

Description: Amazing Standard glaze pitcher showing a sign painter wearing a floppy hat, perched on a swing painting a large Rookwood logo with 5 flames on the side of a building. 1891 is the date in which Matt Daly produced this piece. Marks include the Rookwood logo, indicating the date, shape number 259 B, an impressed W for White clay, an incised L for Light Standard glaze and Mr. Daly’s incised initials. There is also an older paper label present with a price of $17.50 in pencil. Uncrazed but having two small, open glaze bubbles. One bubble is just beneath the spout and the other is where the handle joins the body. We occasionally see the company logo on the side of a piece but none are accompanied by the painter himself.
