Lot No. 1091

Manufacturer: Rookwood

Artist: Lorinda Epply

Description: Rookwood Porcelain vase, decorated at the height of Art Deco’s popularity in 1930, by Lorinda Epply, who encircled the vase with a very colorful and stylized flower garden. The interior of the vase is covered with Rookwood’s Annversary Glaze, introduced around the time of the Company’s 50th birthday. Marked with the Rookwood logo, the date, a fan-shaped esoteric mark used during Rookwood’s 50th Anniversary, shape 2640 E and the artist monogram in black slip. Height 8 3/4 inches. Epply seems to have done a number of Art Deco style vases around this time but this lot and the lot to follow are without a doubt the best we have seen. Very stylish and very clean with no crazing. The purchaser of this lot may buy the next lot for the same price.

Size: 8 3/4”

Estimate: $3,000.00 - $4,000.00
