This lovely vase is from the Weller Pottery Company “Wild Rose” line, circa mid-1930′s. It stands an impressive 9 3/4 inches in height and is 8 inches handle-to-handle, 4 inches across the base and 5 inches across the top. Finished in a matte glaze, the background is pastel green with two large white wild rose flowers. On the base is incised “Weller” in script. There are no cracks, chips or repairs but there are some marks of wear and bit of crazing on the inside. Near mint condition vases of this make are valued at $160.00 – $200.00. With that in consideration, we offer this nice vintage piece for $100.00.
The Weller Pottery Company was established in Zanesville, Ohio, in 1882, the outgrowth of a small one-kiln cabin works Sam Weller had operated in Fultonham. In 1895 the company entered the art pottery field. Through the years it grew into one of the largest potteries in the country and was home to many renowned designers and decorators. The depression brought a slow, steady decline in sales and in 1948 the pottery plant was closed – making pieces from this era even more precious.
