A large, beautiful, 1884 Rookwood art pottery covered ginger jar, decorated with a bird in flight. The jar is in excellent condition (there is a small scratch on the jar's body - see picture). The jar has the size-code, 'A', the code for the largest-sized Rookwood articles: the ginger jar is 8 1/4 inches tall and 7 inches wide at the shoulders. Since the jar is not artist-signed, it was most probably a display piece at Rookwood's showroom in Cincinnati. This type of decoration was done principally by Albert Valentien and to some extent, by Matt Daly - refer to page 88 of L W Books', 'A price guide to Rookwood', for a similar-decor 1884 jug decorated by Albert Valentien (shown in last picture here for your reference)
