Weller Pottery 1903 Jardiniere Jap Birdimal Planter
The Jap Birdimal line was designed by Frederick Rhead in 1903. This line was named for its Japanese influence along with a combination of the words bird and animal as they were frequently decorated with geishas, birds and bubble trees.
This particular variation features molded and painted tall dark blue trees on a shaded ivory and blue background. This jardinière is uncommon and difficult to find in any condition. This planter is really an exceptional example and a perfect addition to any pottery collection.
Exceptional planter in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze, no repairs, and underglaze crazing. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process including glaze misses and glaze pops. All pictures are original and un-edited.
Authentic and signed Weller.
