We proudly offer for purchase this Antique Limoges Style American Art Pottery circa 1880 Rettig-Valentien (attributed)Canteen Vase and most likely fired at the Coultry Pottery in Cincinnati Ohio. This item is in the very same style, technique and identical shape as other known and signed works by Martin Rettig & Albert Valentien circa 1880. The Canteen Vase we offer has what appears to possibly be a small ARV. painted under-glaze on the lower side of the vase, as well as an additional series of letters/signature on the opposite side and it does appear to be the correct ARV signature for Albert Valentien and this is why the attribution has been made on this exemplary American Art Pottery Vase. There is light overall crazing as expected, and a spot where a finger has flattened part of one of the feet prior to firing. An exemplary early item measuring 10" X 9" X 2 1/2". The condition is excellent and the decoration of Pink Dogwood Flowers on a multicolored and broadly stroke painted ground. There are 1 or two extremely tiny flea bite sized flecks off one foot but it may well be from the making and almost not there at all. I mention this for accuracy sake and full disclosure. There are no chips, cracks or repairs and the item has been tested too and none are present. Shipping is $20.00 in the Continental U.S. Insurance fee will be calculated at the time of purchase.

We proudly offer for purchase this Rookwood Very Rare and Very Early Cobalt Blue Decorated Jewel Porcelain Footed Bowl. This item has a band of Arts and Crafts inspired Floral and Geometric in Black under a Rich and very Early Cobalt Blue Jewel Porcelain Glaze. This item is marked on the base with the impressed Rookwood Reverse RP and 14 Flame Logo, XVI for 1916(first year of trial for this glaze type), shape #2256C and a sideways P for Porcelain body, Porcelain Glaze. This item has a very textured thick glaze on the base which has obscured the artist initials. The Glaze has a large number of glaze bubble pops, which expose the dark brown clay color beneath. These pops are all pretty small, but there are a large # of them, but again, they do not detract from the wonderful beauty of this item. This particular bowl is most likely a trial item, as it was NOT marked with an X on the base, when many items with almost invisible flaws were so marked. This truly is a very RARE and UNIQUE chance to own one of the FIRST decorated Cobalt Jewel Porcelain Rookwood Items. We would like to mention that this item does have several bottom rim grinding flakes/chips to the glaze which are absolutely in the making. The interior of this item is of a lighter shade than the exterior, and it too has a wonderful under-glaze texture. This item measures 8 inches across and 3 1/8 inches high. The Blue is actually darker than our images show due to the flash. Other than the bottom grinding flakes/chips (original) there are no Cracks or Repairs or Crazing to this item.+ s&h
