Stunning Rookwood Pottery Turqouise Blue Glaze Vase, 1919 by Arthur Conant.
Arthur P. Conant was born in the city of Wyoming, Ohio on February 13, 1889. After studying at the Cincinnati Art Academy, he decorated pottery for Rookwood from 1915 until 1939. Besides decorating, he also designed various ornamental pieces and bookends. He is best known for scenic vases depicting plants, flowers and animals including birds. The decor of this artist, in terms of color and composition, often contrasts with the work of other Rookwood artists and is considered by collectors to be above average. Arthur Conant died on April 10, 1966 in Lake Worth, Florida.
This is a beautiful piece with an complementing combination of glaze colors. Marks include the Rookwood logo, date, shape 535c and Mr. Conant's monogram. This is a quality vase although there is crazing. The iris' are well done.
Excellent original condition in that there are no chips, no cracks, and no restoration but crazed. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process.
Authentic and signed appropriately with the Rookwood symbol and shape number. All images are original and un-edited. Artist signed.
