This large ceramic pottery bowl or low planter has a rich, warm earth tone feel. The Roseville Imperial Pattern 71 was introduced in 1921. Although the bottom is unmarked this is a well documented pattern. It is in excellent vintage condition, no chips, cracks or repairs. Imperial is a textured, relief modeled background, which looks like bark. It is glazed in semi-gloss with stylized knotted vine with a single green leaf, brown vine, and purple berries. Wonderful collectible piece for display or use as originally intended a low planter.
This beautiful vintage azure blue bowl is marked Roseville USA 653- 4″. This design was discontinued circa 1940. It has very good color, glaze work and relief, having been made with a “super mold.” The background color and white rose blossoms convey a serene romanticism. The piece is in good vintage condition, with no repairs, only a small hairline crack and a rusty ring of discoloration on the inside toward bottom.
