Roseville Pottery Bowl 1931 Mostique Stylized Iris Arts and Crafts Bowl #131-5
The Roseville pottery company introduced the Mostique line between 1915 and 1916. This line is probably the most recognizable next to the Pinecone line. There are approximately 80 styles in the Mostique line. Usually they are crudely stylized leaf and floral patterns often in spade shapes with alternating heavy lines and geometric forms. The bodies are a textured gray or tan and most pieces are unmarked.
Here we have a 5 inch wide Mostique bowl is the perfect size for any mantle or shelf. Definitely from the arts and crafts period with the geometric designs which surround the entire bowl. The designs are meant to resemble iris'. This piece was designed by Frank Ferrel in 1931. There are some glaze drips which are typical of this design. Even with all of its flaws this is still an outstanding example of this line. This is a beautiful arts and crafts bowl.
Outstanding bowl in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to the outside. I cannot detect any repairs or restorations on this piece. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process including glaze misses and glaze pops.
