Subject Matter:

Rookwood Pottery, located in Cincinnati, Ohio, was the premiere American fine arts pottery from its foundation in 1880 through the 1930's. The early works were hand-painted but in the early twentieth century the pottery introduced its line of production ware, of which this is an example.

Physical Description:

Slender blue-glazed vase with a streamlined form that tapers to a base narrower than the shoulder of vessel. The work has a modeled and stylized motif of peacock feathers. Overall effect is of simplicity and refinement.
