1948 Roseville Pottery Wincraft Apricot Vase #284-10
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. Although this is not a trial glaze piece, it still is an exceptional example of a large Wincraft vase. 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 Pottery company produced the Wincraft line in 1948 and was named after the then-company president Robert Windisch. This line does not have a consistent trait among the pieces except for the sheen. The design elements like the flowers are borrowed from their other lines including the colors. The Wincraft line is in a variety of colors including yellow, blue, green and brown. People commonly refer to this color as brown but according to the original advertisement for the WIncraft line, this color is actually known as apricot. The mottled light apricot brown transitions to a deep rich brown at the base with an accent of dark green for the lily pad leaves. Exceptional detail to the off-white cream flowers at the top of the vase. Large enough to have your guests notice this outstanding vase. Displays well from all angles. What a wonderful vase!
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: 10 1/4", Base: 3 3/4" , Rim: 2 1/4"
