Large Antique Weller Dickens Ware Art Pottery Jardiniere Excellent Condition Nr For Sale
This large jardinière or bowl is approximately 11” wide, measured across the
widest point, and approximately 8 ½” tall. The diameter measured across the top
opening is about 8 ½”. The pot is embellished with what appear to be seven hand
rendered daisies in thickly applied glazes of yellow, gold and green. The piece is incised on the underside of the
base Weller Dickens Ware and the number 204. The interior base of the pot has
an incised W. The rim of the pot has two tiny pin head sized shallow flakes
that appear to be burst bubbles. I noticed this only when I scrutinized the pot
under magnification, and it is mentioned for accuracy. The underside of the
base has expected wear on the feet and some light crazing. There are no chips,
cracks or hairlines. The following is some information I found on the internet
about this prestigious maker of American art pottery.
Weller Pottery was founded by Samuel Weller in Fultonham, Ohio in 1872. In
1882, Mr. Weller moved the pottery to Zanesville, Ohio. In 1893, William Long
became partners with Weller. After William Long’s departure from Weller,
Charles Babcock Upjohn became the art director. Mr. Upjohn worked in that
position from 1885 to 1904. Upjohn is credited with the introduction of the
famous Weller Dickens Ware line. Upjohn left Weller for a short time in 1901 to
work at Cambridge Pottery in Cambridge Ohio. Upjohn left Cambridge in 1902 and
returned to Weller until 1904.
