Rookwood Pottery 1921 Green Bat Match Holder #994 Z-Line
Rookwood match holder, mat green glaze, Bat.
Designed by Kataro Shirayamadani, this Rookwood match holder from 1921 displays a wonderful mat green glaze, possibly from the Z-line although not marked this way. The difference are the tick marks that surround the front of the tray - these do not appear on most examples that are found. This is a scarce piece and is seldom seen - this is your chance to grab this for your collection.
The shape number is 994 (which stems from #334 Z according to the Rookwood Shape Book), it displays well, and is a great piece to accent any arts and crafts decor. The glaze is expertly applied, and it is completely without crazing. It is free from cracks or crazing. This does have one professional repair to a wing tip but otherwise this piece is perfect. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process.
Authentic and signed appropriately with the Rookwood symbol and shape number. All pictures are original and un-edited. Width: 5 3/4", Height: 2 1/2"
