Here we have a wonderful standard glaze Rookwood ewer from 1899 hand-painted by Edward Diers. The beautiful hand-painted apple blossoms that partially surround the body of the squat ewer are extremely well executed. An exceptionally unusual piece perfect for any Rookwood collection. A true pleasure to see. Displays perfectly from all sides and angles. The perfect size to fit in your curio cabinet.
Exceptional ewer in that it has no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze and very minor crazing.
