ROOKWOOD RARE COBALT DECORATED BOWL ARTS & CRAFTS!
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
