Roseville Pottery 1949 Celestial Blue Ming Tree Oblong Planter #568-8
The Roseville Company introduced this line in 1949. Although the decoration on this line has been described as a Japanese bonsai tree, Ming was one of the Chinese dynasties. Body colors are glazed in a glossy Celestial Blue, Jade Green and Temple White. The pieces have gnarled branches as handles. Marks are usually raised.
Here we have a 8 1/2 inch long Ming Tree planter in a pleasing high gloss Celestial Blue. Great ming tree design which resembles a bonsai tree with white fluffy pads.
Exceptional piece in excellent original condition in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze. Very minor glaze lines. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process.
Authentic and appropriately signed Roseville with shape number on the bottom. I cannot detect any repairs or modifications. All picture are original and un-edited.
Measurements Height: 4", Rim: 8 1/2" , Base: 6".
