Rookwood Pottery 1918 Bell Flowers Sherbet Vase #1278E Caroline Steinle
This particular Rookwood vellum vase was painted by Carolyn Steinle. Carolyn Frances Steinle (Carrie) was born in 1871, in Cincinnati Ohio. She began working at Rookwood pottery at the age of 15 in 1886, but did not begin decorating until the year 1892. She worked in a variety of glazes, including Standard Glaze, Iris, and Vellum. She left the pottery in 1925 to join a convent. She died on August 1, 1944.
This is a beautiful hand decorated vase with dripping bell flowers that surround the rim. The glaze color reminds me of a light coffee. Perfect decorator piece and a pleasure to display. A very impressive example of this vase and a pleasure to admire. Displays perfectly from all sides and angles.
Exceptional vase in that it has no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze. Minor crazing. I cannot detect any repairs or modifications. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process.
