About 5" t. x 6.5" (across the top, to edge of handle).

Extremely rare and early Roseville design, on an otherwise undocumented shape. This line was called Blue Porcelain by the early authors, although it is made of pottery too, like the other products.

The Viennese-style geometric decorations could only have been the work of Frederick Hurten Rhead, as he was au courant with the latest design motifs of the day, even the Secession (also called Art Nouveau outside Austria).

Some minor losses, but in excellent condition, with no chips or hairlines to the body. Unusual piece for the advanced collector!
