1931 Roseville Jonquil Handled Vase #538-4
This vase was purchased from the estate of Randy Monsen who not only collected Roseville pottery but also wrote a couple of books such as "Collectors Compendium to Roseville Pottery Volume 1". Included in this auction were many rare experimental and trial glaze pieces. The inventory sticker on the bottom is from Mr. Monsen. I did not remove this to preserve the provenance and pottery history. This can be removed by the next owner if you so chose.
Roseville introduced the Jonquil line in 1931. This line has trios of flowers girdling a textured body. The color of this line transitions from a mottled brown and ivory moving up to a muddy brown and green. The interiors are usually glazed in a brighter variegated green. Pieces are unmarked with silver foil labels. This is a fantastic example of a Jonquil vase with good height of 4 inches. Very good mold with excellent rich color. The rounded handles are perfect and attached near the top of the vase. They are close to the body so they won't interfere with other items on the shelf. The Jonquil line just screams spring and a perfect way to celebrate the season! Displays well from all angles. Perfect for spring!
This item was inspected with a Mil-spec UVA (365NM) and UVC (254NM) high intensity ultra-violet light and no evidence of repair or modification was detected. Exceptional vase in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze. Excellent original condition. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process including glaze misses and glaze pops. Dimensions are below.
H: 4", Base: 2 3/4" , Rim: 3 1/2"
