RETTIG-VALENTIEN LIMOGES GLAZE CANTEEN VASE ca 1880
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.
