Rookwood Pottery 1894 Mahogany Blue Heron Vase #748D Edward Able
Rookwood Pottery Mahogany glaze Heron vase, Edward Abel, 1894. This Rookwood Pottery cabinet vase from 1894 displays a wonderful heron wading among bamboo. Shape number 748D, it is marked appropriately with an "R" for red clay, as well as an "M" for mahogany glaze. Decorated by Edward Abel, a small mound of tiger eye effect can be seen in the lower areas of glaze pooling.
There is some typical crazing that is not noticeable under normal conditions, but obvious under brilliant light and magnification. This piece does have a wheel ground "X" on the base, likely for a few stray glaze pops which are very typical in the mahogany glaze. This lovely cabinet vase is free from chips or restoration, and will be a wonderful addition to any collection.
Exceptional vase in that it has no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze and very minor crazing. Artist signed on the bottom by Edward Able. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process.
Dimensions are below.
Authentic and signed appropriately with the Rookwood symbol and shape number.
