ITEM: ITEM: You are offerding on an antique circa 1915 - 1925 Weller American Art pottery wall pocket vase with a figural nude maiden form. Great matte two colored glaze and a well articulated form with a pretty demure maiden that is more in the Art Nouveau aesthetic than Art Deco but this is clearly a transitional piece. -- This is the Hobart line specifically --
This character is referred to as "Lydia"- she was created in two different
forms....the standing centerpiece (which we will be offering next week) and this the "Lydia" wall pocket vase. The line is called "Hobart" and is
from around the 1915 - 1928 time period. The style is called " Lavonia "
which was produced about in the middle of that timeline - Lavonia features a mixed base color of lavender for her person and a
very light blue over the lavender base for her dress. She stands a full 8
1/2 inches tall and is 5 7/8 inches at her widest point which is her
outstretched arms....her hands holding the hem of her flowing skirt.
She has a flower pocket that goes down her back in a "V" shape down to
her toes.The depth of her from stomach to the slightly curved back of
the piece is a full 2 1/4 inches.
Her "Lavonia" centerpiece sister is
pictured on the cover of "All About Weller Book II"
Rudolph Lorber designed this line for Weller as
early as 1915. It continues to be a very popular line for collectors and it is
quite scarce. This example is marked.
The condition of this piece is very good not better.... there is crazing in the glaze which is to be expected, and one chip on the back form behind the maidens outstretched arms and wrists this ding can be seen in detail in about photo number six here in the listing. When tapped the vase sounds great, interior
shows a tiny bit of usage and mineral deposits from water, the surface has in addition to the crazing some rubbing and scuffs.
Also has a few glaze pop marks and glaze flaws all that said - This is gorgeous, the photos here do not do this justice the spidering is more visible in this raking light box lighting situation.
The winning buyer here will be delighted
