Wonderful Mission Style 1920‘s Matte Glazed Weller Forest Planter Jardiniere For Sale
piece of Weller Forest pottery measures 4-5/8“ tall and 5-1/2“ wide across the
rim. Sharon & Bob Huxford’s The Collector’s Encylopedia of Weller

related that Forest was designed by Rudolph Lorber, inspired by the country
side scenery he once observed from the window of a train.
this line, my piece is not signed. But I
believe that this is an early piece because the mold lines are still crisp and
well-delineated. Also, the colors on
this piece are rich and wonderful, with the lovely blue shade used for sky and
water. It is very Mission, Arts &
Crafts looking and would work so well in those kinds of settings.
Condition: I can find no chips or cracks on the exterior
or bottom. Inside the pot, but not going
all the way through to the outside, are 2 shallow cracks coming down from the
rim. I have included photographs of
those. There is also a little lime
deposit in one area. Again, from the
exterior, this piece looks perfect and is visually so pleasing.
