Peters & Reed Moss Aztec Mission Arts And Crafts Style Pinecone Vase:
This is a stunning vase by Peters & Reed. It is part of moss aztec collection with pincones, bunches of needles and branches. This is a molded terra cotta with a brown speckled high glaze interior. The vase is in excellent shape with no chips or cracks but some black smudge around the top lip, look at picture 7. The vase is 10-1/4" tall and just over 5-1/4" across the top. This would be beautiful in a craftsman stlye home to a log home, very pretty!
Here is some information on the company and designer that is interesting:The Peters and Reed Pottery Company was established by John D. Peters and Adam Reed in 1899. Peters and Reed's first truly successful art pottery line, Moss Aztec, was designed by Frank Ferrell and introduced in 1912. Ferrell, of course, would move on in 1918 to the Roseville Pottery, where he would design more than ninety highly recognizable and beloved pottery lines over the next 35 years. Peters and Reed changed its name to The Zane Pottery Company in the early 1920's, but continued to produce many of the art pottery lines introduced by Peters and Reed until 1941, when the company was sold to Gonder Pottery.
