Up for consideration is a magnificent Roseville Matte Green Arts & Crafts pottery jardinière / planter, circa 1910. This is an important and rare piece of Roseville, especially in this size.
The jardinière possesses a clean and crisp classic Arts & crafts design with a striking deep matte green color and great patina. It is bulbous in shape with vertical panels and a footed bottom. The piece has an 11 inch opening at the top which widens to 13 1/2 inches at it's widest at the bottom 1/3; And it is a full 10 inches tall. The bottom reads 501/10, the 501 referring to the style and the 10 indicating it's 10 inch height.I believe that this is about as big as this style jardinière was made. This jardinière is pictured in a circa 1910 Roseville catalogue reprint in the reference book, "Roseville In All It's Splendor" by Jack and Nancy Bomm, pg. I have included a photo of that page. This striking piece is in remarkable condition with one exception. There are no cracks, lines or repairs. But, it is not perfect. There is a 1/2 inch chip on the rim in one place. For those that know pottery, this is not a difficult repair. Please examine the photos as they offer the best description of the piece and it's condition. This pottery jardinière represents a major piece of quality craftmanship by Roseville and a very rare one. (I personally have not seen another). It's size, classic lines and magnificent matte green color and patina make a statement, and will make this an important addition to any pottery collection.
