Here is an absolutely gorgeous vintage Roseville Pottery Jardiniere in the Cosmos pattern with the tan colored glaze. Everything about this piece of pottery is right – the glaze finish, the colors, the flowers, the shape, and especially the Roseville mark on the bottom.
This very large Jardiniere weighs just about 11 pounds, stands 12” tall at the top rim, and measures 11” across the top and 5 ¾” across the base. The bottom is marked with the incised Roseville mark, the model number of 649-10, and two inspection marks under the glaze – the number 12 and an X.
There are a few very minor flaws that need to be pointed out. On one side, there is a small old chip on the tip of the far right petal on the white flower on the left of the floral design (I took a clear picture of this). When you hold this piece at the base and tap it with your knuckles, it rings true and structurally sound and solid. I found two, very tight hairline cracks on the top rim. The first one is located on the top arch above the white flower on the left and the second one is in the crease of the top cutout treatment above the floral display on the opposite side of the other hairline. I took pictures of both of these. There is a crescent shaped hairline on the base that is located at the 2:00 o'clock and 4:00 o'clock positions when you read the backstamp – it corresponds to a dark half circle mark on the inside of the bowl in the bottom. This can also be seen in the pictures.
I examined this very carefully under direct sunlight and found some clear age crazing around the top portion – nothing major or damaging. There are a number of pencil type dark marks on the inside of the bowl and the outside. This jardiniere was used as intended and the faint marks are proof of that. There is also a faint leftover mark on the outside above the floral display where someone wrote the number 400 (I think) on it. I am pretty sure this will finish coming off – all I did was give this huge bowl a wipe down with a warm damp cloth.
This large piece of Art Pottery from the 1930's will be (at the very least) double boxed so it will arrive safely on your doorstep.
