Ivory Rookwood baluster vases

This pair of ivory matte glaze vases each depicts four nature-inspired relief panels on the baluster form: swimming trout; a bird on a branch; birds in flight; and tree frogs. Marked on the base of these vases is the production information: the back-to-back “R” and “P” surround by flames is the trademark of Rookwood; the “XXXIV” denotes the year of production, 1934; and 6476 refers to the shape number of the vase.

Maria Longworth Storer founded Rookwood Pottery in 1880, named for the family's Cincinnati estate. Rookwood was one of the first manufacturing companies in the United States to be founded and headed by a woman.

Rookwood Pottery was the first American ceramics company to gain recognition for its artistry. After a Rookwood entry won a gold medal at the Paris Exposition Universelle in 1889, the worldview of American ceramics was forever changed.

Dimensions: 8 x 5.5 x 5.5 in.

Date: 1934
