This vase has some size as it stands 7 11/16" tall and is 5 5/8" in diameter. The bottom has a diameter of 3 1/4.
This vase has a classic Greek urn shape. It depicts vertically carved leaves that have an Arts and Crafts stylized flower with a stem separating each one of the leaves. The background glaze is a very pleasing matte lilac purple glaze. This color glaze in any form is hart to come by in Rookwood. When this glaze is found it is usually on the smaller production pieces of art pottery.This is the largest I have ever some across in my 47+ years as a collector and dealer. This is a wonderful Arts and Crafts design vase with a beautiful soft pastel matte glaze. The vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, chips nicks or dings. There are a few glaze misses along the bottom edge. This is very hard to see when displayed but I did turn the vase on its side and took a close-up. The picture before it shows how it looks when displayed. The vase is signed on the bottom with Rookwood's reverse RP sunburst logo along with the Roman Numerals XXVIII for the year of manufacture, 1928. There is also the number 2413 impressed into the bottom. This is the mold number for this shape from Rookwood Pottery. It is a beautiful large vase in a very hard to find glaze color from Rookwood Pottery. It would look just wonderful on that Stickley, Mission, Arts and Crafts style bookcase. No store lets you out of the building with the merchandise unless it is paid for. Maybe if enough of you do this, they will change their policy.
