We very proudly offer for purchase this absolutely OUTSTANDING & RARE Complete KENTON HILLS PORCELAIN (American Art Pottery) Jewel Porcelain LAMP BASE by WILLIAM E. HENTSCHELL. The complete and original Bronze and Brass hardware on this item is marked CREST 1715. Crest Lamp CO of Chicago is considered one of the finest lamp manufacturers of the early to mid 20th Century. They used only the highest quality Art Pottery, Porcelains and Art Glass to enhance their hardware. This Original and completely intact lamp base also happens to have a magnificent "KENTON HILLS" WILLIAM E. HENTSCHELL Artist signed Lamp Vase! This is an absolutely ORIGINAL Kenton Hills Lamp base as it is not a post production drilled lamp base. It is an actual lamp shaft mold created always to be a lamp base. The base is signed on the side with William E. Hentschell's signature and the interior rim of the base is impressed 177 followed by black under-glaze marks which I have not identified. As is common for most Kenton Hills Porcelain/Pottery high glaze items, this also has some crazing as can be seen in our images. The Kenton Hills Hentschell Lamp Vase measures 13" tall and 6 1/2" across at the widest point. The over-all height of this Kenton Hills/Crest Lamp base is 18 1/2" tall! This is one of the most desirable American Art Pottery/Porcelain companies available due to the fact that Kenton Hills was in production only from late 1939 and ended all production by 1943. Kenton Hills was located in Kentucky and was a firm created by several Rookwood Art Pottery employees which included William E. Hentschell, David Seyler and Harold Bopp. This item has it's original patina and even original dirt as we will not clean this item nor rewire it. This is absolutely and completely original, something that basically no other Kenton Hills Lamp available anywhere can claim. This item has no chips, cracks or repairs. Shipping/Handling and Insurance is $30.00 in the Continental U.S. Additional photo's are available upon request.

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

We offer for purchase this Absolutely Beautiful and *SCARCE* ROOKWOOD Yellow Jewel Porcelain Bowl by Lorinda Epply. This item is covered in the very sought after and scarce Yellow Jewel Porcelain Glaze. It is decorated with Warm Florette's that circle the Flared Rim and a large Central Florette. The reverse side of the bowl is decorated in dripping Blue, Brown and Black creating a stunning effect. This item is marked on the base with the Rookwood Reverse RP and 14 Flame Logo. XXIV for the year 1924. Shape #2757 with a right dot. The Artist initials LE for Lorinda Epply, one of Rookwoods most sought after artists. The bowl is also marked on the base with a wheel cut into the glaze Double X mark denoting this item as a double second. The reason for this is a firing split which occurred in the final firing of this item. It appears that one of the stilts slipped slightly, creating pressure and a subsequent crack/split that is more noticeable on the base than the interior of the bowl but it is there. The item was obviously considered Beautiful and Artistic enough to not destroy and was most likely given to either the Artist or Worker at the Rookwood Showroom. It is truly a stunning example of a very Scarce Glaze with No Apparent Crazing! Other than the Firing flaw there are no Chips or repairs. This item measures 7 1/4" across and stands 2 1/2" high. Shipping is $12.00 in the Continental U.S. Insurance is available for an additional fee upon request.
