Rookwood Bellflower Vase in Matte glaze

Unlike the artist painted vases produced by Rookwood, these particular items, called production ware, were created many times using different simple glazes with no artist embellishment, and therefore were more modestly priced. Most of this type of piece was meant as utilitarian ware, not as simply decorative art, and although meant for daily use, many pieces can be found in excellent undamaged condition. There are many styles available to a general collector of Rookwood ware, and merit collecting of and by themselves, and can be collected for far less than the more costly Artist pieces.
